Being a photographer for the Winnipeg Folk Festival I am lucky to be able to witness a lot of wonderful musical moments each year, and 2016 was no exception. Though my visual mindset is usually focused on capturing these moments through still photography, since being added to the festival’s social media team I also periodically switch gears and capture raw, behind-the-scenes videos of these sorts of folk fest moments.
I have just finished uploading three such videos to my Youtube account of entire song performances. Check them out below and, if you’re interested in this kind of stuff, subscribe to my Youtube channel to keep informed as I upload more of this sort of content. There are a couple videos already up over there from last year as well, and as I find time to edit them together this public library will continue to grow.
The first of these two videos are of The East Pointers performing Secret Victory and The Stubborn Mule to an energetic crowd, and the third is of San Fermin jamming with The Staves and Mikaela Davis to come up with a unique take on their song, Sonsick.
