November 30, 2015: Hey there friends,
It's about time you had a word from me. I'm writing you from a hotel room in Kaohsiung, Taiwan's second-largest city, where I'll be playing later this evening, mid-way through a two-week round-the-island tour. I've just come down from three days spent alone motorbiking through the mountains, and I feel I've had such an eyeful of beauty... read my words from the road

Elated to be joining the beautiful people at Blue Skies Music Festival! I've heard about this festival for years, and it's always stirred my imagination. Even better, this year the lineup includes two of my favourite songwriters in the whole world, Corin Raymond and Jonathan Byrd. Why don't I let Corin tell you about it in his own words? "Blue Skies was the first festival Ani Difranco played in Canada. Blue Skies happens on land that is collectively owned by the 100 or so folks who run the festival, and the only thing that land is used for - aside from being home to all the wildlife that lives there year-round - is Blue Skies. Nothing is left behind. Everything is recycled. The outhouses are made of timber and built right into the earth. There's a barrel of peat outside each one. They've got recycling stations with 12 different containers - for everything. The stage, the structures, everything on the site is made of canvas, timber, and rope. Everyone camps. They've been around for 40 years but they cap their ticket sales at 2000. There's a lottery to see who gets to buy tickets, and tickets are gone in a matter of days, without anyone even knowing who's playing that year. There's no website. Children are raised there, year after year. It's the most genuine community I've ever experienced at a fest." If that sounds like your kinda thing, get your entry into the lottery! It's gonna be magic.
