This year I worked on the Open Stage Crew at the Mariposa Folk Festival, alongside with Ken Allen and Jennifer Ives, who have been previous guests on For the Sake of the Song. At the soundboard for most of the weekend was Olivia Duck, who is a dynamic singer-songwriter in her own right. I enjoyed several great conversations with Olivia over the weekend and we were able to walk to the ball diamond a bit away from the bustle of the festival to record an interview. Olivia is an Orillia resident who has been singing and writing for many years. She has recently returned to Orillia after about 5 years living in the big city of Toronto and we are sure glad to have her back.

Sitting here on a cold November evening listening to something that was recorded last July, is a very nice way to enjoy my tea. I really enjoyed Olivia’s song “Walk It Off.” And she’s right Sean! What you’re doing with this show is a great service to us all!
