This year's Muddy Water Music Festival promises to be bigger and better once again. Starting on Wednesday, July 20 the music will be flowing each night until the grand finale on Saturday, July 23. Be sure to watch the Sandy Lake First Nation web site at http://sandylake.firstnation.ca for more information and schedules. Hopefully some of the evenings sessions will be web cast, the same way it was last year so people in other communities can also listen to bands.
