Published Dec 23, 2010For a small town in the Maritimes, Sackville, NB plays host to a surprising amount of music festivals. In addition to the annual SappyFest, the town will soon welcome the eighth instalment of the Stereophonic Music Festival, which will take place from January 19 to 22 with an additional date on January 29.
Among the performers who will appear at the event are Julie Doiron (pictured), Snailhouse, Baby Eagle (aka Constantines guitarist Steve Lambke), Tanya Davis, Olenka Krakus and $100's Simone Schmidt.
The festival is a fundraiser for Sackville's campus and community radio station CHMA 106.9 FM. The final schedule and venues are yet to be announced, but if you click on the embedded video below, you can watch Sackville's own Shotgun Jimmie sing about some of the highlights of event. The clip was filmed on December 3 at George's Roadhouse in Sackville, and it features Baby Eagle on cue cards.
