Calgary Folk Music Festival is a genre-defying, continent-linking festival where fiercely independent, creative troubadours and master instrumentalists from Mauritania, Korea, New Zealand, Australia, the UK, Ethiopia, the United States and Canada celebrate diverse traditions, deep roots and cool grooves.
71 artists from 13 countries, 7 Canadian provinces and 8 indigenous nations perform on seven stages around the Island.
On Thursday night, hear the soulful gospel sounds of The War and Treaty, acoustic harmonic duo-turned-band The Milk Carton Kids, British troubadour Passenger and indie pop quartet Alvvays.
Friday night, celebrate Joe Jackson’s diverse, iconic 40+ year career plus enjoy Australian Aboriginal icon Archie Roach, the seductive pop of Rhye, and the eloquent indie sounds of Stars.
Saturday night opens with 2018 World Music Juno Award-winners Kobo Town, psychedelic dub ensemble African Head Charge, the broken-hearted country rock of Lee Ann Womack, Calgary heroes Reuben and the Dark’s introspective, anthemic sounds and closes with A Tribe Called Red’s electric powwow.
Sunday night’s festivities include Shovels and Rope with their signature roots/punk/country creations, alt-country/indie-rock crooner Neko Caseand deft guitarist and cool-breeze melodist Bahamas.
