Also, if you like the idea of Saskatoon music, you should check out a great book by local writer extraordinaire Craig Silliphant. He wrote a book about local tunes, with contribution from some fellow writers (including me! woo!). Check out interviews here, and here and here!

October is on the way. I will be gone for a couple of weeks, but back on October 21!
