Winnipeg Folk Festival 2010 was three days of sun, dust, music, giant mosquitoes, gianter dragonflies, and four Cat Empire gigs – sort of. I’ll qualify that later. It was a great weekend, and it’s nice to know we’ve got some more folk festival time coming up in Calgary two weekends from now. Folk festivals are a special breed, a lot like the mosquitoes. There are some things that are commonplace at folk festivals that you just never get to experience anywhere else. For example: I heard the phrase “that guy can whistle like a motherf…” about five times in two days.
