Welp, I meant to have this post up a week and a half ago. If only “real life” never got in the way…

Continuing on from previous posts of photos from the Peterborough folk festival, here we’ve got Nick Ferrio and His Feelings, Fish and Bird, and Tanika Charles and the Wonderfuls.

One more post of Folk Festival photos to come, with Tin Vespers and Donné Roberts.

Also photographed a show at the Spill last Monday, with Watershed Hour, Stuck on Planet Earth, and KAYO and The Blackeyes, which will find its way here eventually.

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.

I’ve spent a bunch of Saturday and today working through the photos I took at the Peterborough Folk Festival. I’ve still got a roll and a half to scan in and another on top of that to develop, so it might be few days yet before they’re all ready to go.

Until those are ready, here’s a few crowd shots I got while I wasn’t down at the main stage photographing the bands. I didn’t really expect any of these to be useful photos, so I was pleasantly surprised to find these on the negatives.

More Folk Fest photos to come over the next two or three days. In the mean-time, the friendly folks over at Electric City Live have a write-up and some great photos of the festival, which is worth checking out.
