Earlier today, Jim Kloss of Whole Wheat Radio sent me a link to the Brampton Folk Festival. Clearly this is a hoax link, I mean with performers like “Dermot O’Dreary & Brendan Catheter” who are described as “Oily charmers for the ladies” and activities such as “Competitive Drinking” (with Hamish McTwattie), it has to be a joke – right? I lamented that this event was being held in Brampton England, not Brampton Ontario where I live. A quick Google search shows that we do have an honest to God folk festival and I’ve never heard of it. I’ll have to reserve June 18th 2005 to check out the 2005 edition.
