The Vancouver Folk Music Festival returns to the city's Jericho Beach Park on July 19 to 21, and organizers have announced a number of heavy-hitters will hit the stage for the 36th edition of the event.
While we previously learned that Ontario sad-sack hero Hayden would be there for the first night of festivities, the festival announced the rest of the lineup today (May 9), with a few of the bigger artists including Steve Earle & the Dukes, songwriting icon Loudon Wainwright III, Kathleen Edwards and Cold Specks.
