The first ever Kingsville Folk Music Festival takes place this weekend.
A festival highlight is the first ever “Legends Session.”
Bruce Cockburn, Ken Whiteley and Valdy will be performing a session stage 3:30pm to 4:30pm on Saturday, August 9; an intimate performance in which the three will have the opportunity to interact, share songs and stories. It’s an unprecedented combination and sure to be one of the highlights of the over 100 performances during Festival weekend.
Over the course of the weekend, over 40 award-winning established and up and coming performers will be performing on five stages, including up and coming violin virtuoso Jaron Freeman-Fox and the Opposite of Everything and east coast legends Ron Hynes and J.P. Cormier. The Family Stomping Ground is an area dedicated to family and children’s activities with face painting, kids karaoke, guitar playing workshops and incredible performers such as Fred Penner, Magoo and Washboard Hank.
