Taking the lead from two of the oldest folk festivals in North America — Newport in Rhode Island and Mariposa in Orillia, Ont. — the Winnipeg Folk Festival was designed to be a collaborative affair, relying on the talent and ingenuity of the musicians it hosts to further encourage an interactive relationship between performer and audience members through a workshop setting. For Chris Frayer, artistic director of folk fest, the willingness to do workshops is a deal- breaker when he considers which emerging artists to invite. “ I need them to come in the spirit of the festival,” he says, adding that without a strong workshopping vibe, there’s not much to help distinguish the Winnipeg Folk Festival from the plethora of new festivals popping up every year across North America. “ We spend so much time sharing the workshop experience with new people because it’s not happening at the other festivals,” he says. “ It’s getting more and more unique as new festivals that are emerging don’t have it. It’s becoming harder to get people to do them, because they’re unfamiliar with them and a lot of people don’t come from a collaborative background.” First- time folk fest performer Terra Lightfoot ( no relation to Gordon) is fully embracing the collaborative festival atmosphere. The Hamilton, Ont., singer- songwriter is scheduled to participate in four workshops throughout the weekend. She says she’s specifically looking forward to the all- women session — with a stellar lineup of strong female voices that includes Jessica Pratt, Frazey Ford, the Weather Station and Twin Bandit, the Girls Just Want to Have Fun workshop on Friday, July 10, is a can’t- miss event. “ I’m so excited for that one because I love hearing the songs close up and kind of having to play or sing together when there’s an easy part that everybody can catch on to,” Lightfoot says. “ Those magical moments that happen in workshopping… that’s why I play music.” The guitarist, who released her newest album, Every Time My Mind Runs Wild, this year, relishes the ability to work with other musicians and “ lift them up” in a workshop setting. “ I live for collaboration. That’s the most exciting part of being a musician,” she says. “ Getting to work with people you’ve never worked with before, getting to improvise, having to change things on the fly… it’s awesome.” Not all musicians at folk fest are as willing to collaborate as Lightfoot; Frayer notes not every pairing works out the way he hopes it will. When asked if a workshop has ever fallen apart at the seams, he nods and says with a laugh, “ Oh, absolutely.” “ Sometimes they’re brilliant and super fun and collaborative and bands become fast friends, and then sometimes it just doesn’t happen. It’s always going to be good but it’s not always going to be magic.” Americana- soul group Dawes last played the Winnipeg Folk Festival in 2011. A veteran of the workshop format, the quartet is looking forward to working with pals from the SoCal music scene for the California Dreamin’ workshop on Sunday afternoon, July 12. “ Jenny ( Lewis) is a good friend, and Griffin and Wylie even played on some of her latest record,” says Dawes singer/ guitarist Taylor Goldsmith of his bandmates Griffin Goldsmith and Wylie Gelber. As a writer, Goldsmith loves that the workshop setting allows a peek into the process of building songs — both talking about how he puts songs together and hearing how other artists do it — because “ no two writers do it exactly the same.” Dawes is no stranger to the folk festival environment, and Goldsmith agrees that the workshop culture developed and maintained by Winnipeg’s fest is something special. “ It’s definitely unique to Winnipeg and gives fans that much more insight into how the music works, which is always a good thing,” he says. The full workshop schedule is available at winnipegfolkfestival. ca/ folk- fest/ schedules/ erin. lebar@ freepress. mb. ca Twitter: @ Nirerabel By Erin Lebar Winnipeg workshops a highlight for performers Though the glory days of SoCal folk- rock may be in the past for some, others, including Frayer, are embracing the future of the genre, looking to a talented crew of new folk musicians to lead the way. “ I got turned on to a bunch of artists from the area that I kind of fell in love with,” Frayer says. “ I started to peel back the layers of the L. A. music scene and it seems like there’s a renaissance, a revival in southern California for folk music.” Among those blazing the folk trail are Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, a 10- piece indie ensemble led by singer Alex Ebert, known for their hippie- inspired tunes and casual attitude that personifies the chill California vibe. Josh Collazo, drummer for the group, is a bornand- raised Californian who says it’s “ an honour” to be a part of what some are deeming a folk revival, though, he adds, it’s not really anything new for L. A. to have a high concentration of artistic, creative people. “ I think it’s kind of a natural thing for California. People are always looking for a new style of music and a lot of times it’s easiest to pull from the roots of the music around you that you’re into,” he says. Like Frayer, Collazo chalks up part of the high concentration of folk musicians in California to the weather. “ It’s pretty laid back out in southern California… People want to move out west to start over and be refreshed, and I think the sunny vibes just poke through,” he says. The Home hit- makers left those sunny vibes behind, however, when preparing to work on their new album — expected to be released later this year or early next — travelling to New Orleans to write and record. “ Normally, Alex takes the lead on the writing, but this was an entirely different process for us,” Collazo notes. “ We went in with the intention of trying to write everything as a band, all sitting in the same room. It came out better than everybody expected and we’re really excited about that.” In a bold move, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros filled their set at the 2015 South by Southwest festival entirely with new songs. They were fresh out of the recording studio and decided to take a chance on revealing all of their new material at once. “ I don’t think we ever get nervous onstage, but that show, I think everybody was a little bit... there was a lot more anticipation because we wanted everything to be perfect and for it to be a really cool experience for the audience,” Collazo says. “ I don’t think a lot of bands show their cards right away, and it was kind of an interesting approach to build some momentum for the new album.” Collazo notes Winnipeggers may not get to hear any of their new music when Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros take the main stage on July 9, however. In true SoCal go- with- the- flow style, the band doesn’t use a set list but instead waits to see how the crowd feels and reacts before choosing what songs to play. “ We let the audience dictate the way the show’s gonna go,” Collazo says. “ Alex is really good about going out into the audience and asking somebody at random what song they want to hear and we usually just roll that way. Rather than it just being curated by the band, it’s much more of a communal experience by getting everybody involved. “ We might pull out some new stuff, we might not. Just depends how it feels when we get out onstage.” See our playlist of Winnipeg Folk Festival acts at winnipegfreepress. com. erin. lebar@ freepress. mb. ca Twitter: @ Nirerabel ‘ We let the audience dictate the way the show’s gonna go.
