‘Folk Fest in the City’ an Annual Musical Fundraiser

Winnipeg Folk Festival LogoAn annual charity fundraiser will resurrect the sounds of the Winnipeg Folk Festival for an evening during Folk Fest in the City.

Folk icon and 2014 Artistic Achievement Award recipient David Lindley will perform at the event, set for November 21 at The Fairmont Winnipeg.

“We are always striving to find new and creative ways to bring music into the lives of everyone in our city,” said executive director Lynne Skromeda. “Folk Fest in the City gives us a chance to reconnect with our community of supporters and friends to recapture that Folk Fest feeling, while raising funds for programs that bring music to kids and families throughout the year.”

Proceeds will go to fund the festival’s year-round community programs including its Musical Mentors and Guest for a Day programs.

The event also includes a gala dinner, dancing, silent and live auction and other musical performances by Adam Hanney, and the Black Sea Station with special guests.

Tickets are available online for $150 or $1,500 for a table with sponsor benefits.
