Vancouver Folk Music Festival 2015 – pt. I
Last weekend, on the hot, dusty shores of Jericho Beach, the 38th annual Vancouver Folk Music Festival went off with the sound of strings, reeds, brass and voice. Not a spot of rain, just great vibes all weekend long as Vancouver welcomed the likes of Frazey Ford (above), Pokey LaFarge, Richard Thompson and the Melbourne Ska Orchestra, all captured in this first batch of images. This was my 12th time shooting the festival, starting in 2003 with a half dozen rolls of slide film to capture Ani Difranco, Billy Bragg, Utah Phillips and many others. Oh the memories, and at least one artist each year that opened my ears to a whole new way of sound! Check past blog posts for more from recent years, with a small archive right here on flickr, too. Part two, coming up soon!
