Just got back from Calgary Folkfest with Christine - we had an amazing time and were lucky to see Blue Rodeo again. We've seen them together 4 times now.
I remember Vik used to bring home Blue Rodeo CD's from the library all the time, and was always playing them. I couldn't stand it much at first, with all the strange instruments and long guitar solos. Five days in May is one of my favorites now and I love listening to the inspired solos.
As Christine said tonight, just when you think they're playing your favorite song, you hear the next one and that's your favorite too.
After all these years, they still impress. What a fabulous show.
