Listen to Ottawa Folk Festival Robert Service Collection on your phone!
On August 13-15, 2010, A hearty band of Librivox volunteers, led by Bob Ledrew and Sean McGaughey, recorded selections from the Spell of the Yukon by Robert Service with patrons, musicians and organizers of the festival. We chose Robert Service because he is an iconic Canadian poet. It was our intention to record the whole volume, but the festival was disrupted by torrential rains on its final day.

Sean McGaughey also prepared a behind the scenes podcast of this project at http://www.ductapeguy.net/2010/12/for-the-sake-of-the-song-live-from-the-ottawa-folk-festival/ (Summary by Sean McGaughey)
