Alberta Music has some projects going down this weekend at the Edmonton Folk Music Festival and we want you to know about them!
1. Alberta Music's Video Project: WHAT DOES MUSIC IN ALBERTA MEAN TO YOU?
In partnership with the Edmonton Folk Music Festival, CJSR 88.5 FM and the School of Song, Alberta Music will be collecting video, audio and photo footage throughout the weekend of the festival to collect footage that emphasizes the great music scene we have here in Alberta and to highlight the Albertan musicians participating in this year’s fest:
100 Mile House (Edmonton), Michael Bernard Fitzgerald (Calgary), Leeroy Stagger (Lethbridge), Maria Dunn & Lizzy Hoyt (Edmonton) as well as the School of Song artists: Scenic Route to Alaska, Rebecca Lappa, Trevor McNeely, and Bardic Form (Edmonton).
We are looking to connect with you - Albertan musicians, industry, community builders and fans alike - to capture the impacts, emotions and culture that help us tell the story of music in Alberta and what it means to our community.
We will be taking over the CJSR tent on Saturday August 9th and Sunday August 10th, 3:00-6:00pm to facilitate interviews- stop by and share your Alberta music story!
The footage will be edited together into a short piece, available for viewing on Alberta Music’s website, and elsewhere.
