Continuing my post from yesterday, here are some more photos from the Peterborough Folk Festival. I’ll be working through the main-stage line-up in order, so first off are the photos of Melissa Payne and Jos. Fortin.
Melissa and Jos. are the recipients of the Peterborough Folk Festival’s 2011 and 2012 Emerging Artist Award, respectively, so needless to say the main-stage event got started with some serious home-grown talent.
Sadly, as a newbie photographer I’m bound to make all sorts of mistakes when I’m processing film, and I managed to scratch up the roll that had these shots something awful. You live and learn, this is what survived.
Hosting the main stage, like last year, was the always amazing old-timey Sheesham and Lotus and Son. Like Sheesham says, “That old time music is better than it sounds.” Two snaps of them, from right after Jos. Fortin’s set:
Still working through processing and scanning the rest of the photos. Tomorrow I’ll have Nick Ferrio and His Feelings and Fish and Bird, and possibly Tanika Charles and the Wonderfuls, depending on how ambitious I am.
