We wrapped up Hillside 2010 during the first hour of CFRU’s Royal City Rag on August 7 (8-9 a.m.) with some short interviews with Hillside Access Support, Michou’s Mike Hargreaves and Guelph’s Tannis Slimmon as well as music from some of this year’s featured artists.

Access Support does a great job at ensuring that Hillside is accessible for individuals with disabilities. Also, check out Ability Adviser Susan Wheeler’s reviews of accessibility at Hillside and London Ontario’s Home County Folk Festival

Its hard to let Hillside 2010 go but move on we must. We have some great memories to sustain us. Check out our photos here as well as the fabulous work from some of Guelph’s talented photographers on Blog Guelph. The good news is that we have this fall and winter’s, Doug Larson inspired collaboration with Manhattans, MASH Mondays and the replacement for Hillside Inside, Hillside Downtown 2011, to look forward to.

Later in the hour, we talked about two day-long music festivals taking place this summer, the Fresh Water Jamboree taking place on Saturday August 7 at the Riverside Park Bandshell as well as the Sunlight Music Festival taking place, at the same venue, a week later.

Councillor Laidlaw

We are pleased to welcome passionate Ward 3 councillor Maggie Laidlaw to CFRU93.3fm‘s Royal City Rag this coming Saturday, August 7. Councillor Laidlaw will be joining us during our second hour, 9-10 a.m.

As part of our pre-election coverage, we have invited all of the current city council, including the mayor, to join us on the show for an end of term report. An opportunity for council to discuss the main issues they see facing the city, it also gives us a chance to ask some important questions of them. Check out our previous interviews with Councillor Lise Burcher, Councillor Leanne Piper and Mayor Karen Farbridge.

It should be a fascinating conversation. You won’t want to miss it.

In the first hour, we’ll be on the music festival beat, wrapping up Hillside 2010 and focusing on two other local music festivals, the Fresh Water Jamboree on August 7 and the Sunlight Music Festival on August 14.

The Fresh Water Jamboree is a free music festival at the Riverside Park Bandshell that run from noon till 11.00 p.m. on August 7. The festival, now in its third year, was established to help raise awareness about  the importance of  “fresh water”  not just in Wellington County, but also across Canada and throughout the world. The day-long event will feature musical performances by Sam Turton, Peter Slack, Carmela, Mike Sharp and many more. A presentation about  the importance of fresh water by Wellington Waterwatchers, with support from The City of Guelph, will take place at 7.00 p.m. Food and refreshments will also be available.

A week later, on August 14, the 2nd Annual Sunlight Music Festival takes place, also at the Riverside Park Bandshell, and again, from Noon till 11.00 p.m., rain or shine. A free festival, the Sunlight Music Festival is also solar powered. As it is also a fundraiser for Guelph Wellington Women in Crisis, donations are encouraged. The festival headlined by Danny Michel, also features Lynzie Kent, Rusty Waters and The Broken Troubadours, Ian Reid, Jesse Parent, Christen Zuch, Lime Parade, Doug Clayfield, Richard Laviolette and the Oilspills, Stereola and closing act, Sapphire City.

As always, rest assured, we’ll wrap it all up with some great music.
