I’m not alone in my assertion that Dan Mangan will win the Polaris Prize this year. I mean simple, infallible blogger logic would dictate the talented folkie will win the cash. (Hey, I’ve done the math and just makes sense.) Of course winning that would put the cherry on the top of a very successful Sundae year for Mangan. His 2009 album, Nice, Nice, Very Nice was recently released in the U.S., this time through Arts and Crafts. If that weren't enough there'll be no moss growing under this musician's acoustic guitar as he'll be heading across Canada once again this fall. The extensive tour runs from Montreal all the way to the West coast.
