Vancouver Folk Music Festival 2014, Part I
Keeping with the ‘summer wrap-up’ theme, and my summer isn’t complete without taking a weekend off (relatively speaking) to enjoy the worldly sounds of the Vancouver Folk Music Festival. I say ‘relatively’ because I am actually working most of the time I’m onsite. As part of the Festival Photography crew – this was my 12th year volunteering – I wander the grounds gathering marketing and promo materials for the Festival, shooting the artists giving it their all on stage and those candid moments along the way. The weather this year was threatening, but it didn’t quite come down to umbrellas and gum boots thankfully. Dramatic skies are always appreciated in my book, anyways! Here’s the first post and a small collection of images from this year’s fest.
Pictured here are: The Lemon Bucket Orchestra (complete with smoking fiddle action!), Ferron and the Matriarchs of the 13 Cedar Bark Robes of Wisdom, Riccardo Tesi and Banditaliana, Great Lake Swimmers, Leo ‘Bud’ Welch, and Andrew Bird & The Hands of Glory. Pt II to follow…
