2 August 2, 2012 UPTOWN AUGUST IS LONG & McQUADE MONTH AT The full Armada cover /5 In 2010, Dave Fort loaded up his band—the local psychedelic folk act TWIN— into a canoe and, along with a fewother musician pals, did a tour of Manitoba via the Assiniboine river. Dubbed the Assiniboine River Music Armada, Fort's ambitious vision has become an annual event—and this year's tour is shaping up to be its most successful yet. Uptown's Jen Zoratti caught up with Fort to dis- cuss this year's run of shows, howthe event is grown and what the (immediate) future holds. Hint: it involves the Ol' Miss.
