    Dan Mangan…..Have seen him at a free concert a Olympic Plaza, Whistler, and
    fell in love with his sound and style. Had an “ant seat, in the bleachers of the Q.E. to see him the 2nd time, and would be delighted to hear some of his interesting new songs at Deer Lake, as part of this multi-talented, multi-muscician event.
