It was a really great weekend of music in Saskatoon, with the real coming out party of Saskatoon's newest addition to festival season, MoSo. Though not technically its first year, this really was the debut of what promises to be an amazing multi-venue festival spanning many musical genres, a la Sled Island in Calgary.

Our resident photographer, Jason Allen was all rearing to hit the streets, camera in-hand, to document the festival, but a last minute soccer injury (playing on a team with MoSo Festival Director Rich Taylor no less), sidelined his shutter actuating abilities, but not his show-going spirit.

A chance encounter with local photog Michael Morien at the CFCR-sponsored Friday night stage at the Fez brought about the following batch of photos, so you can relive the greatness that was MoSo, or kick yourself for missing out.
