Limestone City Blues Festival

I will tell you all about the first time I heard my favorite Hip song live. It was in the summer of 98. The headlining band for the limestone city blues fest in Kingston, canceled last minute. Dan Ackroyd was hosting the event and rummors were all over the radio that he was calling on his friends the Hip to help them out. My brother, my bestfriend and I drove to Kingston that afternoon. We took in an evening of great performances. We were front row center when the Hip took stage at 10pm and opened with Boots or Hearts.... my favorite song:)Later Dan A. joined them on stage along with another blues artist and together they put on the best show I have ever seen. I attended my first show when I was 13. It was the Hip's first stadium size show, held at the Civic Center in Ottawa. I have been to every one in the Ottawa area since and the 2000 New Years show in Toronto. In total I have seen 16 shows. My friends would say that Im hardcore cause I will fly from the canadian arctic, over 2000 miles, to see them when they come to Ottawa. I see it as my own personal tradition. The Hip are a part of my youth that I will never grow out of. Thanks Guys
