  1. You make it sound such a wonderful event - you are lucky to have such a pool of talent. (And you make the Black Horse Tavern sound rather attractive)

  2. @Allan, it sure is a musical week here in Miramichi for sure! The Black Horse Tavern is actually a very quiet place where people go for a game of pool or just to sit and chat. Come Folksong Festival week, it changes to a vibrant spot, it comes to life. The area where the tavern is situated used to be a grand dining room around the turn of the last century.
