After a brief hiatus at last year's festival, SappyFest is happy to announce the return of our Songwriter-In-Residence program.
This year's Songwriter-In-Residence is a former resident of the Maritimes and celebrated musician across the country: Andrew Sisk.
Sisk has been actively involved in a number of projects over the past ten years including: Coco et co., Sleepless Nights, and past SappyFest performers, Share.
To preface his residency, Sisk has compiled a podcast that explores the rich history behind SappyFest from the beginning, speaking with musician and eight-time Sappy performer, Michael Feuerstack, festival insider and member of The Legendary Golden River Show Band, Matt Charlton, musician and SappyFest Board Member, Jon McKiel, as well as SappyFest's Creative Director, Lucas Hicks.
Listen to Andrew Sisk's podcast "Long Story Short, Just Kidding" below, and take in his beautiful portrait of what makes Sappy so special before you catch him at the festival later this month.
