Dan Mangan | The Hayloft Dancehall | Picton, Ontario

Saturday, July 15th, 2017


July 14th headed down to Picton to the Hayloft Dancehall to catch Dan play an intimate set in front of fans.  In January of 2015 the owner of the Dakota Tavern in Toronto purchased this neat little venue and did some renos.  The venue holds close to 200 and people are right in front of the stage and can spill out onto the grass outside.  They cook some yummy treats and have a small selection of nice beer on tap.

Dinner in Picton with Heidi, Shelly and Michelle, and over to the Hayloft for the show.  It was a long night after driving back to Peterborough.

Love Dan.  You should love both of us too.


Looking forward to next year to see what little indie bands come out to Cherry Valley in Prince Edward County.


Peterborough Folk Festival 2016 | Dan Mangan

Monday, August 29th, 2016


This year… I was working during this years festival.  Saturday night… ended up going afterwork up north to a cottage to watch the Tragically Hip’s last concert on CBC.  Afterwork on Sunday… I went to sit on the hill to watch Royal Wood perform followed by Dan Mangan.



This year the lineup was pretty good.  Dan was who I wanted to see.  He was great stripped down with his guitar man by his side and he played a great selections of songs.  It was great to see Shay on the Sunday and catch up with her and to my left was a PTBO Tumblr peep Rachel and her BF.


When the festival gave Dan the nod to wrap it up he came off the stage and played two more songs standing on a chair.  Robots is one of the fan faves to close things down.  I was impressed with so many people knowing the words. 🙂

I will knock Dan off my list of 30 artists to watch live on my101 list.  Below is “Robots”

After Dan’s success he got married and had a baby and took some time off and re-branded the band.  I’ve downloaded about 5 songs off his new album.  Love little indie Canadian talent.  Here is a little song that has a bit of piss and vinegar in it.
