This week we begin a series of interviews I recorded of performers at the 2016 Arts Wells music festival in Wells, BC! The first interview, with Keith and Rikka of Vancouver band Warless, was actually recorded in Williams Lake, BC where the band was playing a pre-festival warm-up show the week prior. Keith and Rikka were a joy to talk to, as they explain their unschooled creative process which deeply reflects their West Coast roots, and their desire to spread positivity and good-times through their energetic live performances.

And we have a bonus interview this week with Lionel Connet who is one of the chief organisers of the Music On The Mountain (MoM) Festival in Fort St James, in Northern BC. I caught up with Lionel at Arts Wells where he was volunteering and sharing information and contacts with artists and fellow festival organisers. There’s still time to get tickets to this year’s festival which runs from 19-21 August!
