The Canadian music circuit can, on occasion, be a small world after all. For Justin Rutledge, attending this year's Folk Fest was a weird full-circle for him. Rutledge sat down with Gauntlet writer Kate Marlow and explained his past with singer-songwriter-activist Sarah Harmer, his experience at the festival and the new record he has on the go.

Steven Page has been through some big changes over the last couple years. He separated from his wife of 13 years in 2007, dealt with drug charges throughout 2008 and parted ways with the Barenaked Ladies in early 2009. The Gauntlet's Ryan Pike sat down with Page in-between performances at the Calgary Folk Music Festival to discuss life, music and life away from the Barenaked Ladies.

Gauntlet: Hi, Steven. How are you doing?

Steven Page: Really good. Happy to be on my own and do my own thing.

Like most audience members, they take time off work and head down to Prince's Island for the weekend.
