Now in its 35th year, the Vancouver Folk Music Festival is one of the more pleasant, feel-good events on this city's calendar-so much so, a former Courier writer even got married there. (Personally, we're waiting for the next outdoor concert from Zamfir, master of the pan flute, to get hitched.) By all indications, this year's Folk Fest, July 13 to 15 at Jericho Beach Park, should be as pleasant as ever with warm weather and plenty of fine local and international talent gracing the multiple stages, including Lucinda Williams, Ani DiFranco, the Cave Singers, Veda Hille, K'NAAN, Dan Mangan, Murray McLauchlan, Hey Rosetta! and The Head and the Heart, among others.
