"We are thrilled to welcome these rare and wonderful artists and performers to Sackville this August to take part in SappyFest 12; we are thrilled by their bold challenges, their brave truth telling, their wisdom and wildness and weirdness, their guitar playing and image making, their singing and thinking and poetry," says Steven Lambke, Creative Director of SappyFest. "When we gather together with open minds and kind hearts we can make magic; together we can open a space where we can all hear and be heard, where we can see and be seen, a space where we can meet and be truthful and celebrate."
