The Festivals

In the Summer of 2014, we embarked on a cross-Canadian roadtrip to attend five folk music festivals.

After that epic summer of 2014, Sable and Twila continue to cover live folk music events throughout western Canada.

Grand Plan

B. Mariposa                C. Winnipeg

D. Vancouver             E. Calgary

F. Edmonton

Starting off at the Grande Dame of Folk Festivals, Mariposa, Sable and Twila will then set up camp in Bird’s Hill Provincial Park for the five days of the Winnipeg Folk Festival. Following this contemporary camping rite of passage, they will head west to the starting line of the Birkenstock 500 at the Vancouver Folk Festival. Crossing the continental divide on their way back to Alberta, they’ll pause in Calgary for the Stampede city’s folk festival before following Highway 2 north to Edmonton, and their hometown festival.
