Mariposa Folk Festival (#Mariposa2017) announced today that Canadian indie music super-collective The New Pornographers will perform at this summer’s festival.
Mariposa Folk Festival takes place July 7th, 8th and 9th, in beautiful Tudhope Park in Orillia, Ontario, Canada, on the shores of scenic Lake Couchiching.
The group comes to Mariposa fresh off of the release of their seventh album on April 7th, Whiteout Conditions, which has received stellar reviews for its style and originality. In March, they released a teaser video for one of the tracks called High Ticket Attractions, which has been described by Stereogum as “…a winningly melodic pop gem, a slice of driving electric guitars and burbling synths…”
According to Artistic Director, Mike Hill, “The New Pornographers are an innovative, intelligent music collective with tunes that are full of hooks, and underscored by great melodies.” Hill predicted that, “There will be lots of dancing and general merriment when these stellar musicians get on the stage.”
