The schedules for this year’s Winnipeg Folk Festival have been released and from the looks of it, there’s much to look forward to.
A quick scan of the Daytime workshops and concerts, as well as the Main Stage evening lineup, reveals many wonderful gems to be found amid the Festival’s 40 workshops and 68 concerts.
You may want to check out Shakey Graves, Jason Isbell and Liz Longley in a southern-themed session; or listen in to Kurt Vile, Steph Cameron and Steve Gunn in a guitar-driven workshop. Perhaps a Main Stage concert featuring Bahamas or Arlo Guthrie-Alice’s Restaurant 50th Anniversary Tour, is more to your liking.
The list of great concerts and engaging workshops is impressive.
Most folk music festivals offer unique musical experiences, and the Winnipeg Folk Festival is no exception. The collaboration between artists, as they share their songs and stories with fellow musicians and with the audience, provide an intimate atmosphere to watch some of the best music in the world.
This year, as is usually the case with WFF, there is some sensational local talent that will be performing as well, including The Mariachi Ghost, Leonard Sumner, The Reverend Rambler, Summer Bear Dance Troupe, and several others.
