That’s a wrap on the special fall edition of Bluesfest!
Ryland James, Barenaked Ladies, and Jann Arden brought music to Bluesfest’s stage at Lansdowne Park. The mini fall festival ends on Saturday night, Sept. 25.
Bluesfest is presenting outdoor concerts at Lansdowne Park from Sept. 23 to 25. Kicking off the weekend, the Thursday night lineup includes performances from rising singer-songwriter Lauryn Macfarlane, Oji-Cree multi-instrumentalist Aysanabee, indie rock band Tokyo Police Club, and Montreal-based Half Moon Run.
Catching up with frontman Devon Portielje, it’s clear Half Moon Run has been through a lot during the pandemic and yet has continued to evolve and is on the cusp of even greater things.

“Two things make us really lucky: one, when we get together, we can still manage to write a few songs, which is nice, since we like writing songs and making records. And people still want to come see us. We don’t take that for granted.”
