Blue Rodeo

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.

  1. Agreed... I have lost track of the number of times I have seen Blue Rodeo (dating back to when they played beergardens at Mt A in support of their first albums). Most recent show in Moncton someone requested 'Florida' and though not in their plans, Keelor sang a verse during each of the next few breaks in the action until he'd made it through the whole song. Great stuff. I'd see them again tomorrow!
