The sisters, Charlotte and Sarah Command, were excited to be back performing live and had several new songs to debut in Ottawa.

Almost thirty years into their career, the band was grinning from ear-to-ear as lead singer David Usher proclaimed how the group felt like kids again performing in front of fans.

Headlining night two of CityFolk was ’90s alt-rock band Our Lady Peace, led by Raine Maida, who performed in front of the largest crowd of this year’s festival, so far.

OLP wasted no time on stage, quickly diving into their hits such as “Superman’s Dead” and “One Man Army”.
