Emerson Drive Boots and Hearts 2013

Boots and Hearts 2015 Artist Preview: Emerson Drive

What? Yes, in case you hadn’t heard Emerson Drive has been added to replace the unfortunate loss of Little Big Town. I’m disappointed we won’t be seeing Little Big Town this time around but we understand that Jimi’s health comes first. And I’m excited to see Emerson Drive back at Boots and Hearts and thrilled […]

Chad Brownlee Blue Jays Game-0450

When The Lights Go Down: Chad Brownlee & the Toronto Blue Jays

Before an awesome and entertaining 7-6 extra innings Blue Jays walk-off win, Chad Brownlee took over the TD Music Stage outside gates 10 and 11 and put on a country music showcase for Toronto baseball fans. Brownlee and the band came on stage in brand new Blue Jays jerseys and looked good doing it. And […]

St. Vincent WayHome Art and Music Festival-

St. Vincent at WayHome 2015 [Photo Review]

WayHome Day 2 St. Vincent I’d never heard of St. Vincent before the WayHome artist line up was released and I’m ashamed to say I didn’t do a lot of research even though she was playing the main WayHome stage. There were so many things to do to prepare. Shame on me. Let’s say, if hindsight […]

Vance Joy WayHome Art and Music Festival

Fire and the Flood: Vance Joy at WayHome 2015

From the first WayHome artist lineup announcement, Vance Joy was sitting at the top of my list. There was something about him, something sweet and charming, authentic and compelling. Ok, at least I thought there was based on his videos. It never occurred to me that it wouldn’t translate in real life and I wasn’t […]

The Sheepdogs WayHome Art and Music Festival-9714

Rock & Roll CanCon: Sloan and The Sheepdogs at WayHome 2015

Sunday afernoon at WayHome gave us some awesome rock and roll CanCon to soak in while the sun beat down on our backs as Sloan and The Sheepdogs both took turns on the main stage. Sloan! Sloan kicked off the main stage action on Sunday, and the veteren Halifax rockers didn’t disappoint. It was a […]

Little Big Town Sorry

Who Will Replace Little Big Town at Boots & Hearts 2015

Update: We have an answer… The Boots & Hearts schedule now shows Dallas Smith moving out of his original time slot on Sunday and into the empty slot on Saturday opening for Eric Church. Emerson Drive will now be joining the B&H lineup, taking over in Smith’s Sunday spot. Got it? Good! ——————– Sadly, Little […]

Walk The Moon WayHome Art and Music Festival

Shut Up and Dance: Walk the Moon at WayHome 2015

“It’s our job to make sure you have a good fucking time. Are you having a nice time?” It was a nice gesture, and it got a pop from the crowd, but everyone at the WayBold stage on Sunday evening had already made it clear that they were good before Walk the Moon asked the […]

Kendrick Lamar WayHome Art and Music Festival-9324-2

Alright: Kendrick Lamar at WayHome 2015

To be completely honest with you, I went into Saturday night knowing that I was 100% unprepared for Kendrick Lamar. I was right. The sun was down as somewhere around 30,000 people were stretched from the stage as far back as they needed to be – and when the lights came up on the stage […]

Hozier WayHome Arts and Music Festival

Hozier at WayHome 2015: Take Me to Church

In the early evening hours of Friday at WayHome, Hozier took over the main stage with his hair tied back, his Irish accent on thick, and his guitars tuned and ready for action. The Hozier set was a Bluesy, well rounded hour that included a cello, keys, bass, drums, and 2 back-up singers… and then […]

Neil Young and Promise of the Real

Rebel Content: Neil Young at WayHome 2015

On Friday night, on the WayHome main stage, the main event showed up! Neil Young put on an incredible 3 hour set in front (my guess) 20,000+ fans – and he was ever single bit the legend that we believe him to be. It’s still serious business when Neil Young is in song, pushing out […]

For Esme-8220

And We’re Live: WayHome 2015 Day 1

WayHome 2015 officially kicked off Friday with a ton of sunshine, 4 active stages filled with music, and thousands of fans wandering the grounds of Burl’s Creek Even Park. The layout is vast, covering acres and offering shaded refuge, great sightlines, and a ton to see and do. We did our best to take a […]
