The 35th Canmore Folk Music Festival
Project: Music Festival Video
Client: Canmore Folk Music Festival
Role: Production Company – Director, Shooter & Editor
The 35th Canmore Folk Music Festival was an outstanding success with record crowds being treated to talented artists such as Current Swell, Kim Churchill, New Country Rehab, David Myles, Jeremy Fischer, Elage Diouf, Bruce Cockburn, and the legendary Ian Tyson. With strong performances on the main stage and more intimate workshops on stages 2 and 3, this year also featured the pub stage in the Canmore Miner’s Union Hall. As a local film production company with a deep passion for music, CH Video & Photography decided to give back to our local community and create this video – the only request we had was to capture the feeling of the event and thank the 500+ volunteers who came together to make this event such a success. With the help from Namaste FIlm Productions and CameraOperator.ca, we were given full access to the event which gave us the privilege of interviewing artists such as Kim Churchill, John Showman (of New Country Rehab), and Jack Semple. We also covered some spectacular evening performances by Current Swell, Elage Diouf, Bruce Cockburn, and the legendary Ian Tyson.
