I've been a little quiet lately, but that's because I've been super busy with my ukrianian side! I just finished playing Canada's National Ukrainian Festival with Euphoria Band and oh my GOODNESS what a blast! I met some family, played a lot of ukrianian music and got to meet some really awesome people out there in ol' Dauphin, Manitoba and I can't wait to go back! I think that's the most I've ever sang (and played tambourine) in one weekend. Thanks also to Zapovid for jumping in with us for the big Kolomeyka on August 4th! Videos to come on my Instagram @marissakmusic if you want to see what I've been up to this summer.
Now that the festival is done, I am headed to Billingham for some Ukrainian dancing with Vohon Ukrainian Dance Ensemble at the Billingham International Folklore Festival! I will be back at the end of August and you best believe I've got some gigs lined up for ya! Check me out on August 30th at the Nook Cafe in Edmonton, 6:30pm. More details to come!
