Vancouver Folk Music Festival 2012, Part I
This past weekend was the 35th anniversary edition of the Vancouver Folk Music Festival and it was another doozy. Held at Jericho Beach Park in Vancouver’s westside, this is definitely one of the year’s highlights for me. I’ve been shooting, and later coordinating, photography for the fest for just about a decade now and I can’t imagine a summer without a weekend in the park. Shooting the stages, artists, festival goers and general revelry is a blast. The crew I work with are all incredibly talented photographers and together we try to capture the spirit of the ‘Folk Fest’.
Here is a first selection of shots from VFMF 2012. Performers in this batch include K’naan, The Cave Singers, The Head and the Heart, Wazimbo, Dan Mangan, The Johnny Clegg Band and e.s.l. As I edit, I will post another gallery with many more!
