Vancouver Folk Music Festival 2012: photos

Photos by Craig Fleisch

The Vancouver Folk Music Festival brought back its magic to Jericho Beach this weekend. This year's event brings big names like Ani DiFranco, Dan Mangan and Lucinda Williams, but every artist in this event is worth watching. Sunday is the last day to catch the show: don't miss the chance to see some of the best live music performances you'll see all year.     

If you missed the gorgeous sunny weather on Saturday, don't fret: you'll still get a chance to see your favorite acts today. Ani DiFranco takes the stage again at 11:35 this morning, as well as Holly Near and Ramblin' Jack Elliot. Check out the schedule. 

Watch for more event coverage to come on The Vancouver Observer.
