Pick Of The Day: Regina Folk Festival

If you happened to pick up the July 25-Aug. 7 issue of Prairie Dog you should have received a copy of the program guide for the 2013 Regina Folk Festival. If you didn’t, and plan on attending the festival, which runs Aug. 9-11 in Victoria Park, don’t despair, as copies of the guide will be available on site. As well, if you check out the Aug. 8-21 issue of Prairie Dog, you’ll find several pages of concert previews and other information about the festival — which celebrates its 44th anniversary this year.

Headlining tonight is Feist, with Nomadic Massive, Man Man, Hayden and Elisapie also on the bill, with things getting going at 7 p.m. On Saturday, Loreena McKennitt headlines, with Bahamas, Calypso Rose, Rah Rah and H’sao also on the bill. Then on Sunday Neko Case headlines, with Charles Bradley & His Extraordinaires, Rosanne Cash, Niyaz and Carolina Chocolate Drops also playing. Both nights main stage concerts start at 6 p.m.

In addition to the ticketed night-time performances, there’s also a host of free day-time workshops and concerts on Saturday and Sunday from 11:30 a.m.-5:15 p.m. Again, you can get a complete breakdown in our program guide. Or visit the RFF website for more details.

And to get you in the festival spirit here’s the video for Nomadic Massive’s 2012 song “Supafam”:
