The Winnipeg Folk Festival – that Woodstock-like pagan-ish 5 days of music and barefeet, beads and dreadlocks! I’m not a true fan of the event, but excellent musicians frequently play the festival, and summer outdoor concerts are just such a complete sensory immersion who could not love it. I’ve been quite a few times to see my favorite artists play there.
Last year you might remember, Elvis Costello was the main event, and I got some great shots of him, looking right at me
This year it was John Hiatt. If you don’t know about John Hiatt, you should. What a life – recovered from alcoholism, and cocaine addiction, and writes the most remarkable music. His “breakthrough album” was Bring the Family, but he had many more before this too.
Here he is singing one of my favs – Have a Little Faith in Me…
