55th Miramichi Folksong Festival August 2012

It is that time of the year again, the 55th Miramichi Folksong Festival got underway on Sunday with an outdoor Gospel concert followed the next morning with a hearty breakfast of hash browns, scrambled eggs, bacon, toast and tea/coffee with a generous dose of downeast music!!!!

The days are filled with music at the luncheons and evenings with the concert with a full slate of performers hailing from Ireland, Scotland, Texas, Maine to name a few.



Pictures here below the billboard for the Festival is Gerry Roberts and his wife, Brenda from Ireland.  Gerry is a superb guitar player and a marvelous singer.



Next, we have Ian Craig from Edinburgh,great performer!



I was fortunate enough to get my picture taken with Gerry and Brenda Roberts.



Another darling of the Festival is one of our own, Melanie Ross Breen!

I volunteer (along with countless others) every year.  It is a great pleasure to volunteer for the Director of the Festival, Susan Butler, who just lately received a docturate at St. Thomas University of Fredericton to go along many more achievements including the Order of Canada and of New Brunswick, just a spirited, energetic person!!!!

  1. Good gracious, I think I can remember your post from last year and even, possibly, the year before. Time flies : but it flies more enjoyably with some good folk music.
