Great Music in A Beautiful Setting

A couple of months ago (on my way to Europe in fact) I saw that one of my favorite bands, Great Big Sea were playing a show in Banff.  I emailed Tammy as so as I saw it and asked if we should go.  One of the best parts of it was that we could bring the kids.  It was an outdoor venue and the kids tickets were only 10 dollars.  So Tammy and her family and Darryl and I and the kids all headed up to the mountains yesterday for an awesome day.  Here are some picture highlights from it.

The reason for the concert was the Parks 100 anniversary, so there was the park beaver for the kids to enjoy.

If you have never been to a great big sea concert you may not get it, but Great Big Sea concerts are some of the best, even if you don't know who they are or don't love their music.   When you watch them play and even if you've never heard the music you'll love it.  And they love it, they get the audience involved and so much of their music is so upbeat that you can't help but get up and dance.  And Canadians are so nice and polite that in most concerts there is very little standing or no standing at all.  But when Great Big Sea plays they tell everyone, get up!  Vertical Movement! Dance Around!  At this point Canadians then feel okay to stand up.  "Well the lead singer told me to, so I better" =)    At a GBS concert you can't help but clap and dance.  Even people who are non clappers, or not big GBS fans, they will have sore hands by the end.   If you ever get a chance to go I highly recommend it.    As you can see from our pictures we had a great time dancing around.  Especially Nathan. =)

Till Next Time
