Folkswaggin’: Music of the People: September 5 - November 2, 2014

We open up our 2014/2015 Season with something completely different: FOLKSWAGGIN’: Music of the People! This year in our popular Icon series we venture, for the first time, into the music and culture of Folk! Most of what we know and love in Folk music has been created and performed for us by American and Canadian artists; but in truth its origins are centuries old, from peoples all over the globe eventually making its way to the “new world”. Inspired by Edmonton’s own brilliant Folk Festival, FolksWaggin’ is our review of this extraordinary culture and the artists responsible for it’s creation and evolution. It is the traditions passed down from generation to generation, which truly makes it folk music. As Woody Guthrie once said, “Folk music is music of the people, by the people, for the people.” FolksWaggin’ celebrates great North American icons such as Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, Crosby, Stills an Nash, Neil Young and more! Join us around the globe as we celebrate the music and traditions of its people.”
