After a pandemic hiatus, Riverfest Elora was back to Bissell park for festival number 12. The festival in this quaint Ontario town is made up of three days of art, food trucks, arts and craft vendors, community, and of course, music!
It was so amazing to see people enjoying a summer weekend together listening to a lineup of fantastic talent from all different genres of music.
It has become a tradition for local bagpiper Peter Hummel aka Peter Piper, to officially start every day of the festival. A tradition that continues.
Country and Western band from Guelph ON kicked off the festival on the main stage.
Originally from Nova Scotia, Toronto-based Loviet, a.k.a. Natalie Lynn, was the first to perform at the Koop Tent stage.
Toronto artist Omega Mighty whose sound is described as a fusion of r&b/reggae and dancehall, inaugurated the Grasslands Stage.
Windsor ON natives duo The Blue Stones rocked the Main Stage.
2022 Juno award winner for Breakthrough Artist Of The Year, Vancouver BC artist Jessia made herself at home at the Koop Tent stage.
Veteran indie rockers Rheostatics were welcomed to the Grasslands stage.
BCs indie rockers were welcomed back to Riverfest Elora and were a great day one closer at the Main Stage.
Live music photography allows me to combine two great passions. As a life long music fan and off and on photographer this a great match. From shooting small dark shows that leave me cursing the lack of light but energize me with their intensity, to large venues where larger than life productions entertain and amaze I am a fan of them all. I love living in the small town of Elora and continue to be amazed at the great calibre of musicians that come through this part of Ontario. Hoping to share some of this musical talent through my photography.
