Julie Doiron, the magnate behind Sappy Records and Sappy Fest, started her first "real band" in 1990.
When Eric's Trip broke up in '96, Doiron started playing solo. A prolific and supernaturally-talented singer/songwriter, this lovely lady with the braids in her hair hails from Sackville, New Brunswick, and has had a long career of making heart strings tighten, and listeners swoon.
Doiron also plays with Mount Eerie (formerly Microphones) and Calm Down It's Monday.
The Queen simply cannot express how excited we are to have Julie Doiron playing on the May long weekend. She is our diplomat from another world of wonder, Julie, we crown you our honorary guest.
