Advice seems to be everywhere you look. But when was the last time you received advice you could use and trust? The Festival has answered this cry for help with the launch of HELP!, your chance to seek real life, funny and irreverent advice from a panel of semi-distinguished life-livers.

HELP! begins with panelists providing a solution for previously submitted requests. The panel will discuss and debate their solutions. In the second half, the floor will open to everyone who may seek clarification and guidance of their own questions.

Email Help@calgaryfolkfest.com with your problems - about your love life, family peeves, or kicking any number of your vices. We promise to keep your identity a secret - and to do our best to get you on a better track!

Panelists include musician Lorrie Matheson, comedian Jeff D'Silva and others.
