It was wall to wall, or rather tree to tree, as Calgarians packed the mainstage for Folk Fest headliner Spoon.

The Texans proved to be a fan favourite for day three of the Calgary Folk Music Festival.

Tim Baker and All Hands, Kevin Morby, The Barr Brothers, and Allison Russell also took to the mainstage for Saturday night’s performances.

Folk Fest wraps up on Sunday, July 24 with performances by Basia Bulat, Matt Andersen, and Courtney Barnett starting at 6:40 pm.
