2024 artist-in-residence: Peter Moller

We are thrilled to present the work of Peter Moller, who has run Egg Press Co., a graphic and sound design establishment, since 1976. He has been involved as a graphic designer with the Calgary Folk Festival for a ridiculously long time.

He’s also had the great fortune to have played the Festival a number of times with Kris Demeanor and his Crack Band, Kim Barlow, Great Uncle Bull plus a wild, wonderful day playing with Gil Scott Heron on his Festival visit in 1999. As a long time folkie and design partner, Peter's work perfectly captures the colorful history of the festival and its contemporary context as one of Calgary's most treasured musical events.
