|May 29, 2022 Special Edition|
|This special edition of Folk Lines gives the lineup for the 2022 Folk Harbour Festival, provides links for purchasing individual tickets, and shares the disappointing news about Holly Near’s cancellation of her summer performances.|
|Lunenburg Folk Harbour Festival, August 4 to 7, 2022It is with much excitement and an enormous sense of anticipation that we announce our full Festival lineup. As with all live arts presentations, we remind you that lineups and schedules are as complete as we can make them at this point, but are subject to change.|
|Main Stage schedule|
Full Festival passes, and tickets for evenings, afternoons, full days, Gospel concert, and Folk Steps are on sale now!! These can be purchased at the Folk Harbour office (Monday to Friday, 10 am to 4 pm, 125 Montague St., Lunenburg, (902) 634-3180) and Ticketpro.
The Lunenburg Folk Harbour Society has been proactive in keeping our audience members, volunteers, and musicians safe as we present live music in the time of COVID-19. All relevant public health measures that are in place at the time of our Festival will be rigorously adhered to. Please note that unless Folk Harbour has to cancel the 2022 Festival, all Festival ticket and pass sales are final.
It is with profound disappointment that we have to announce that Holly Near has cancelled all her summer appearances for health reasons. When we planned this year’s Festival theme of “Songs of Peace, Protest, and Political Activism” Holly was at the top of our list of artists to invite. We wish Holly all the best, and of course, we will look for any opportunity to present her in the future. To see the power of music in less than two minutes, watch Holly Near: Singing for Our Lives, a preview for an episode of American Masters PBS, a series that examines the lives, works, and creative processes of outstanding artists.
|The Lunenburg Folk Harbour Festival is back! There are plenty of options for tickets and venues (including outdoor venues)—something for every budget and every COVID-19 comfort level. Plan to be part of the excitement from August 4 to 9, 2022.|
