Music Monday – “Your smile is like a breath of spring/Your voice is like summer rain/And I cannot compete with you/Jolene” (Bonus: Incomplete List of Bands I’ve Seen Live)

Dolly Parton was the voice in a movie we watched this weekend (Gnomeo & Juliet – very cute!) and that somehow led to me thinking about the various concerts I’ve seen in my life (Dolly being one of the Top Five believe it or not!)

Off the top of my head, here’s a very incomplete of some of the bands I’ve seen live – either as headliners, opening acts or as part of a festival package.  For that reason, it’s hard to list them all as I’ve gone to many festivals that had multiple artists on the bill (which usually means I remember the headliner and maybe one standout who grabs me but forget everybody else, even if they may have gone on to great things!)

Multiple Times
Corb Lund (5+)
Fred Eaglesmith (5+)
Hawksley Workman (5+)
Tragically Hip (5+)
Spirit of the West (4-5 times?)
Buttonfly (~3 times)
Iron Brew (~3 times)
The Hummers (~3 times)
Roger Marin (~3 times)
