The Short-Long-Short on the Sounds of Old Strathcona Festival!

Anyone in Alberta not coaching a swim meet in Wainwright this weekend should be in Edmonton.

Why? Well other than it’s nice there this time of year and people care a little less about millionaires skating around on ice than usual, there’s a great music festival happening called Sounds of Old Strathcona, or SOS Fest. It’s pretty much the best thing happening in the world since whenever the last time something really great and special happened.

Musicians will be taking over the pubs, restaurants, parks and anywhere else they can fit all around Old Strathcona from 9-11 July. Over 140 performers are slated to play in more than 21 venues.
