Full circle at Winnipeg Folk Festival 2018.

Every year as I return from breezy festival fields to my warm urban apartment, I bring home with me a sense of renewal.

The official vision of the Winnipeg Folk Festival is to cultivate experiences of discovery and learning through the celebration of people and music; however, a quieter goal that has been shared with me over these past few years is that of creating a safe space in a troubled world. In both cases, these aims address larger social values, and it is in this …

Winnipeg Folk Festival 2015 – A retrospective.

Ah, the Winnipeg Folk Festival: a gathering around music, art, and community that pops up in a prairie field for five days every year.  Exactly two weeks from today the 2016 festival begins with the Crooked Brothers kicking things off on the main stage.  Spending time with good friends (both old and new), discovering new music, and happening by chance upon unexpected joys…I’m looking forward to another year barefoot in these fields as an official festival…

    Very cool! Captured the festival very well. I’m also getting excited, but a little bummed that media passes don’t get access to the campground. See you there?ReplyCancel

Winnipeg Folk Festival 2014

The 41st Winnipeg Folk Festival has come and gone.  Once again, an empty field in Bird’s Hill Park was turned into a vibrant community.  We came and we went, but forever we will have the memories. Every year is different but I always leave feeling the same: my head full of music and my heart full of love.…

    What a lovely synopsis of one person’s experience of Folk Fest. I’m glad I got to share a few of those moments with you. My favourite shot… the rubber boots on stage, the sound booth and Pope’s Hill at night. Elephant Revival was also my favourite discovery for this year’s fest.ReplyCancel

    @Courtney: I missed running into you at the festival this year! Europe though, is a good excuse. Hope you’re having a good trip.ReplyCancel

    Europe has been great! 10 more days to go of our 7 week adventure. Definitely won’t miss Folk Fest next year though. Missed it too much!ReplyCancel
