VFMF 2018 – JERICHO BEACH PARK
This year the Vancouver International Folk Music Festival featured many amazing acts from outside of the Canada. From the US we had the wonderful blues artists Jimmy “Duck “Holmes – the last of the Bentonia bluesmen (check out some images from his recent show at the CBC Plaza), as well as fellow countryman Guy Davis. The was solid representation from Europe with two phenomenal acts from Ireland – Wallis Bird and Mick Flannery. Also from Europe I managed to catch a couple of shows by Ilaria Graziano and Francesco Forni. Perhaps the most flamboyant act was Wazimbo and Banda Kakana from Mozambique, who had the crowd dancing wildly despite the heat.
