Position: Festival Director
Company: Canmore Folk Festival - Canmore, AB, Canada
Sue Panning is the Festival Director for the Canmore Folk Music Festival, which takes place over the Heritage Day long weekend, typically the first weekend in August. The festival is a family-oriented celebration of our diverse cultural heritage through the presentation of traditional and contemporary folk, blues, country, Canadiana/Americana, Celtic and Global Roots music. The Canmore Folk Festival presents top quality artists from across Canada and the world as well as supporting emerging artists (local, regional and, in some cases, national) in our rural community. We focus mainly on presenting Canadian artists with representation from across the country and presenting emerging artists mainly from Alberta (particularly from the School of Song mentorship program). Generally, the mix is roughly 17-21 Canadian artists/bands including 5-6 emerging Alberta artists/bands, 4-7 international artists/bands, and 10 - 12 local artists/bands. The 2022 Canmore Folk Festival will take place July 30 - August 1.
