CityFolk 2018 in Photos – Part 1

Like last year, Ottawa’s CityFolk was blessed with wonderful weather. With five unbelievably warm nights, it was perfect to relax outside with a cold beverage and take in some great music. Festivals of the scale of CityFolk run multiple stages. As artists are simultaneously featured on the dual stages, conflicts are inevitable. Since we couldn’t attend every set, here are some quick highlights […]

CityFolk 2017 in Photos – Part 1

Last year Ottawa’s CityFolk had some unfortunate luck with very rainy weather. However, this year Mother Nature was in a much sunnier mood and gifted the festival with five unbelievably warm nights, perfect to relax outside with a cold beverage and take in some great music. Festivals like CityFolk can be a logistical challenge to navigate with all the talented artists on the lineup. […]

CityFolk, the 4 day music festival held in Ottawa, Ontario, was held Sep 15-18th. This marked the second year for the event since re-branding itself and moving to Lansdowne Park. The festival made solid use of three stages: The City Stage on the Great Lawn, the Ravenlaw stage inside the Horticulture Building and the BMO stage inside the Aberdeen Pavillion. A difficulty evident last […]

I’ve been waiting for another opportunity to see them again so this was a perfect start of the day for me. They were also celebrating their new CD release so the crowd was treated to a sneak peak of some of […]

I was a little torn on whether to go see Jenn Grant or Amy Helm. I am a big fan of Jenn Grant and because of that I have seen here many times, and usually as many times as she comes to Ottawa in a year. After hearing about some of the issues with getting into Ravenlaw for Wintersleep and […]

Introducing CityFolk – Days 1 & 2

The Ottawa Folk Festival moved to the city and re-branded itself CityFolk. As one should probably have expected, moving a festival of this size to a new venue would not be perfect in it’s first attempt. It’s taken Bluesfest many years of tweaking before they ironed out most of the kinks at at their location. There are only a couple […]

CityFolk & Marvest from an Artist’s Point of View

I just played a set surrounded by olive oil vats and balsamic vinegars! While The Unrefined Olive provided the savoury flavours, local musicians brought the melodic magic.

As a quaint little space […]
