Strictly speaking the Dragon Boat Festival is not a music festival. It is a not for profit event that raises money for charities and their primary activity is of course the dragon boat races as their namesake would suggest. The festival is much more than just those races though, there are all sorts of great activities that take place and one of them is the evening concert series. I only started attending in 2011 but it seems to me that each year the line-up has been getting stronger and stronger. So much so that even though this festival is not primarily a music festival it has become a major event for music lovers in the Ottawa area.
The first day of Dragon Boat had a great line-up, starting with a local favourite Jim Bryson, followed by the amazing collection of talent that is the Mounties and culminating with the always energetic Yukon Blonde.
