Day 3 of the 38th annual Winnipeg Folk Festival featured, for many, the highlight of the five-day event.

Singer kd lang performed Friday evening to an enthusiastic crowd at Birds Hill Provincial Park. The Canadian pop and country singer-songwriter, known for performing in her bare feet, brought a stellar rendition of Hallelujah, originally written by fellow Canadian artist Leonard Cohen.

The response to lang’s performance was phenomenal, as was described on Twitter moments after her set was finished.

Other artists who took the stage included Dan Mangan, Christa Couture, Sarah Jarosz, Fred Penner, The Siss Boom Bang, Valerie June, Lucinda Williams, Mighty Popo, and the Toots and Maytals. See the full schedule of artists performing today.
