That was a bit of fun

Summerfolk Crowd Surf

Summerfolk 38 has passed. By any standard, this year’s festival was a huge success. There were more people, more sunshine and more musical highlights per hour than ever before.

At the office we are busy putting things away, toting figures and generally catching our breathe.

A big shout-out to all the volunteers, to the staff and to the fantastic musicians who fearlessly stepped up to the stage and gave it their all.

You’ll find a ton of photo’s and comments over at out official Facebook page.


See you next year! Finale

Now Headed for Summerfolk!

It was an amazing afternoon at the Roxy Theatre in Owen Sound.

Fate cruelly placed the finals on the first sunny hot day of the decade. A couple of hundred people showed up, however, to watch stunning performances by the 12 finalists in The Georgian Bay Folk Society’s Youth Discovery Showcases.

Our judges( Joel Leblanc, Liz Scott and Kevin Gangloff) had a lot to choose from.

Five performers will be joining us on stage at Summerfolk this year
