The Rural Alberta Advantage Live at Massey Hall | Peterborough Folk Festival

Sunday, August 23rd, 2015


At the Peterborough Folk Festival last night… the closing artist was The Rural Alberta Advantage.  I went up to the stage in front of the speakers and just loved the energy and vibe of these three.  Loved the the drummer being close and I just watched him whale on them.

I downloaded 8 songs and just loved this video from YouTube from Massey Hall since all the songs I downloaded are from this video and I just ripped the audio from the video and can’t wait till I need a little “pick me up” on any day.  After watching them live… I know am hooked.  Can’t wait to buy a ticket to the next show in Toronto.

Below is a tiny bit of video.  Being in front of the speakers the sound I heard did not pick up on the iPod so I just tried to line up some audio from the Massey Hall and did my best to sync it.  You get the drift.  Check them out live and you will be hooked too.
