    I know. but there are quite a few folk festivals that happen in canada, specifically the world-renowned Winnipeg Folk Festival, in the summer, and Uke Songs would be a perfect fit for that crowd.

    only problem is, if Ed remembers Sunfest 93, and he probably doesn't with how much wine he drank that night, playing outdoors in winnipeg in mid-summer can be treacherous.

    I'm not a surfer...I live about as far from an ocean as anyone possibly could....But I hear there are decent waves in Tofino, BC? I'll be there for the wedding of a fellow 10C'er in June....bring your acoustic for a beach serenade, Mr.Vedder? ....then maybe hit up the Winspear in Edmonton? Cornell played there - place is world class. Please?

    from what I know of the Winnipeg Folk Festival, the people who are at the stages to watch the acts are incredibly into the music. they aren't sitting there yammering about their new hemp purse. otherwise they just stay at their campsite.

    I would just hope the PJ meatheads that get wasted and yell out "EVEN FLOW" at Ed solo shows would stay the fuck home. god that was annoying in Minnie 2011. Ed had to tell them to shut the fuck up at one point.

    It really is. The acoustics are nuts, and there is not a bad seat in the house.

    I'm sure Boom is a great guy, and a guy I'd love to spend a weekend on a beach with. Just not a keyboard/organ guy. maybe it's a church thing. ;)

    Not into seeing PJ play a folk festival. Just normal arena shows would be way better. And yes, I support a Canadian tour, obviously! Don't skip Vancouver! =)
