The fourth annual Little Fest took place a few weekends ago at the Little Slocan Lodge. Performers included Agnostic Mountain Gospel Choir, The Cave Singers, Frazey Ford & Ora Cogan, United Steelworkers of Montreal, The Pasties, Fish & Bird, Widow Maker and Kenny Konrad & Old Blind Crow.
There was an outdoor stage, beverage garden, food concession and free camping. The great music went from noon till 2 am. The atmosphere was so incredible and you could feel it even from walking up the path. The mountain music was drifting through the trees; it was a very unique venue.
Despite the rain, wind and hail the crowd at Little Fest continued to dance and have a good time; nearly 450 people braved the weather and enjoyed all the very talented emerging bands.
