Ottawa Folk Fest

We managed to make it to part of Ottawa Folk Festival this past weekend. Some of it was rainy, some of it was cold, some of it we brought the kids to, some of it was more of a date. We saw some great shows though. It would have helped if I wasn’t such a shortie – I would have been able to see as well as hear the music – but such is my lot in life. The nice thing about a smaller festival is the ability to get up close and personal, and experience an intimate show from musicians who don’t usually play small venues anymore.

I decided to just bring the point-and-shoot, so these aren’t technically spectacular images, but they do bring to life the festival atmosphere – with the lights, the smoke, the emotion, and the passion.

And I’ve included links to some of my favourite songs:

Great Lake Swimmers

Ben Harper

Corb Lund and the Hurtin’ Albertans

Hey Rosetta!

Bon Iver

It’s all about the music.
