Speaking of festivals, we've got a couple of them running concurrently this weekend in St. John's, i.e. the NL Folk Festival in Bannerman Park and the Busker Festival, taking place throughout the downtown core.

For those whose artist tendencies run more toward visual than audio expression, For the Love of Learning (a.k.a. FTLOL), an organization founded by Robin Grant, is looking for aspiring visual artists aged 15-35 to participate in their free arts workshops. Their artist-in-residence is on hand to instruct, encourage or leave you be, as you see fit. They have space and materials and all that is lacking is your enthusiasm and creativity. There is no charge, no registration, and no dress code, and the workshop takes place Wednesday to Friday, from 2:30-4:30 p.m., at 37 Cookstown Road, St. John's, starting August 8.

Tami Jean Fordham, wife of Kelly Jay of Crowbar, passed away suddenly last week, and as Kelly (based in Alberta) will be in Hamilton to play the Festival of Friends next weekend, there is going to be a Celebration of Life for Tami on Monday, August 13, at The Leander Boat Club @ 7:30 p.m., with Kelly in attendance. The performers already scheduled to play are Ian Thomas, Russell DeCarle (of Prairie Oyster) with Dennis Keldie and Steve Briggs, Tom Wilson (of Blackie and the Rodeo Kings, The Florida Razors, etc.), Harlan Pepper, Jesse O'Brien, Brian Griffiths, Alfie Smith, Dave King, Jude Johnson, and Kevin and Riley O'Donnell. There are no advance tickets, and the organizers are asking for a $10 donation at the door, with all proceeds going to Kelly and his children. The Leander only holds 400 people, so get there early.

If you are situated anywhere in the province of NL, and are interested in joining the very informal St. John's Antisocial Blues Conspiracy, visit
