Calgary Folk Music Festival and the National Music Centre present a unique opportunity to learn from Calgary Folk Fest’s favourite guitar heroes, songbirds and songsmiths. Glean new songs, arrangements, vocal techniques and instrumental skills over three consecutive days among NMC’s collection of rare and curious keyboards.
Folk Boot Camp is geared towards musicians with a basic grasp of their craft who want to supplement their own studies with coaching from some of the world’s finest musicians. This year features classes and workshops by Ndidi O, Kat Danser, Steve Poltz, and Dave Bidini (of Rheostatics). Calgary Folk Music Festival, IRIM and Moonstone Creations also present a full-day program that pairs Indigenous youth with emerging and established Indigenous artists and musicians for a time of learning, sharing and creating.
