Pictures from a simpler time

I’ve had a wonderful time volunteering on the Winnipeg Folk Festival photo crew for the last 33 years. During that time a lot
has changed in order to accommodate the Festival’s massive popularity but I still love and look forward to those four or five days in July. When I think back to the early days when a few hundred volunteers got the job done I’m amazed at what the event has become. And, like today, all was cool and everyone was working together to make the experience as good as it could be. So, I’m happy to share some memories from my first 15 years on crew. The show is on for the month of October in the Folk Exchange space–access through the Festival Music Store.

Please consider coming out to the opening on Friday, October 2nd, 5-9pm, part of First Fridays in the Exchange!
