Northern Lights Festival Boreal
Once again, the Northern Lights
Festival Boreal is bringing the great
Canadian musicians to Northern
Paul Loewenberg, now in his 13th
year as artistic director, is thrilled to
bring three top performers in
Canada to the festival stage.
"We have a really exciting festival
this year with headliners Daniel
Lanois on the Friday night, Joel
Plaskett on Saturday night and
Stephen Page on Sunday night,"
Lanois is not on the festival circuit,
which makes catching him at
the Northern Lights Festival Boreal a
special occasion not to miss.
"Stephen Page has been a solo
artist since 2009 and this is the first
public concert in Sudbury as a solo
artist," said Loewenberg.
Another performance to catch is
the three-part harmonies of The
Good Lovelies. Canadian indie-pop
band, The Hidden Cameras, will be
passing through. Their live performances
are described as elaborate,
high-energy shows, featuring go-go
dancers in balaclavas, a choir, and a
string section. Cecile Doo-Kingue,
from Montreal, will entertain with
her blues, soul and afro-folk tunes.
CBC Galaxie Rising Star award winner
Peter Katz will be making his
debut Northern Lights Festival
appearance, as well.
NLFB's 2012 Meltdown winners,
The Almighty Rhombus and
Spencer Jose, will be taking to the
stage. Jose has played with the now
defunct indie group Willett, as well
as extensive touring with Canadian
alternative-country band, Ox.

as Son. They play jaw harps, hambone
percussion and home-made
bass harmonicas in the ragtime and
The festival continues to offer a
wide selection of craft and food vendors
and the Greenville area.
"We are expanding our Greenville
area," said Max Merrifield, Outreach
co-ordinator. "This area will be three
times the size previously. We have
some new green initiatives this year,
as well, such as reusable water containers,
reusable cups and cutting
down on printed program guides in
favour of digital versions since most
people are using smartphones now."
