Hey hey everybody!

As long time listeners know, Hillside is for my money the best music festival around. It is of course a big disappointment that it will not be alive and in person this year, but they have set up a virtual experience at called Hillside Homeside  July 24-26 including workshops, music and spoken word.

This playlist includes many of the artist who will be featured in that experience.

Please note that this presentation of Hillside will be offline after the weekend, but you will be able to access the playlist and archive of Ruby Slippers on CIUT for a week after and then on Mixcloud.
