I spent all weekend at the Edmonton Folk Music Festival. I’ve been going to the festival for over 16 years as a patron. But for the first time this year, I decided to volunteer. I spent the weekend talking to people about waste — particularly compost. Not terribly glamorous, but a very worthwhile responsibility that allowed me to interact with some wonderful patrons and fellow-volunteers.
But before the Folk Fest even began, delightful Edmontonians busted it out, blog-style. And I’ve rounded up some of my favourite posts from last week, including a pair all about Folk Festivals. Hope you enjoy my selections!
And remember, if you come across blog posts worth sharing, submit them using a handy form!
And now, without further ado, the blog watch:
- David Climenhaga questions whether or not disgraced AHS CFO will forfeit his buyout
- Public School Board Trustee Michael Janz is excited about the potential benefits of online voting
- Brenda Kerber has a great post about the questionable use of a drug that would interfere with the formation of gender during pregnancy — particularly for children who might be born with congenital adrenal hyperplasia
- Pamella Heikel-Said talks about her recent break-up with Starbucks
- Gig City has a great article on the flawed Edmonton Folk Music Festival ticket sales system
- Relatedly, Alex Abboud looks at the value of Folk Fests across western Canada
