We spent the morning and afternoon at Stage Six at the Edmonton Folk Music Festival listening to musical storytellers, some well-known and some new to most of us. The festival features seven small stages and one large main stage.
The small stages usually feature three or four artists or groups in 60 or 90 minute concerts. Several years ago Steve Earle told us that in Nashville they call this a guitar pull, but here it's just a workshop or concert.
Most of the performers feature their own songs, but in one concert the groups finished by playing some of their favourite songs, songs written by other songwriters.
These photographs include some of the groups and individuals playing on Stage Six.
