The holiday cheer stayed around a little bit longer this year to keep those winter blues away. As part of the 2017 RFF Concert Series and with a taste of the summer Festival itself, the Regina Folk Festival partnered with The Broadway Theatre in Saskatoon for their second year to present 3 wonderful days of musical warmth on some of the coldest days of the year. On Jan. 19, 20, & 21 Regina got a whole lot cooler thanks to Winterruption. Regina Ambassador Suzy Krause was lucky enough to hit up several of the awesome artists' shows.
"Sometimes life bunches up--not unlike pantyhose--and a whole bunch of stuff lands on one weekend and all of the stuff is important and none of the stuff is disposable. When this happens, you just gotta be like, "Okay, I'm going to wear the same outfit all weekend and not sleep and pretend like it's actually one really long day." This past weekend was like that, and one of the items on the packed schedule was Winterruption. The fine Folk Fest friends at RFF have added another festival weekend to the year (bless them)--the summer one is at the beginning of August, and now there's a winter one in the middle of January, right when everyone in Saskatchewan is collectively weeping, gnashing teeth, and altogether melodramatizing as a result of -50 temperatures and an endlessly crystallized landscape as far as the ice-encrusted eye can see. It's a good reason to leave the house. If your vehicle will start." - Suzy Check out what artists you should listen to now!
