If it is possible, my heart is both broken and bursting with pride for my city of Edmonton. Yeah, I know I have lived in Beaumont for the past 29 years, but Edmonton will always be my city.
Edmonton is known as the Festival City, particularly in the summer when there is a festival of some sort every weekend, or maybe two or three.
This weekend would have been the 41st edition of the Edmonton Folk Music Festival, an annual 4 day festival of folk music held at Gallagher Park.
The link below is a special production of clips from the past 40 years and some truly great performances. It is 1 hour and 41 minutes long, but well worth the watch. It is only available until the end of day on August 9/20 Mountain Standard Time. Give it a look if you have the time.
Here is hoping it is back for next year.
