Day 8 of Ottawa Bluesfest saw one of the biggest names in country music, Keith Urban performing. He certainly drew one of the larger crowds of the season but personally my tastes were more aligned with Mother Mother. They seem to play Bluesfest on a fairly regular basis and I do enjoy catching them there when I can. Personally I first disovered them when they opened for Matthew Good at the National Arts Centre in 2009. They once again put on a great performance as they are known to.

I split my first two sets between Dallas Smith and Lurrie Bell getting a taste of some country and some blues before joining Mike Dubue’s Hilotrons. I had just seen their vinyl release party at the Black Sheep Inn in May but who cares, they’re always fun so I went back for some more.
