The Full Fantastic Line-UpPosted on
The Grande Dame of Canadian folk festivals has announced the full, fantastic line-up for the 55th annual event taking place July 3-4-5, 2015, at Tudhope Park in Orillia, Ontario, Canada.
Mariposa is known for presenting the best singer-songwriters on the music scene, and this year the festival welcomes three renowned headliners – Mary Chapin-Carpenter, Lucinda Williams, and Adam Cohen – whose successful, international careers are grounded in great song writing.
The festival line-up features fifty artists on the North American and international folk-roots music scene, and encompasses a wide range of styles, influences and genres.
This year, in recognition of the Pan American games taking place in Southern Ontario starting the week following Mariposa, festival programming will include workshops celebrating the Americas with artists from Peru, Ecuador, Jamaica, Dominica, Barbados and St. Lucia participating.
Mariposa Folk Festival will feature ten stages and more than a hundred performances over the three-day event, offering lots of great choices for every musical taste. But Mariposa is more than really great music. There’s audience camping, folk activities for children, an Artisans’ Village, exhibits and displays, hands-on learning opportunities, a range of carefully selected food vendors, an Emporium stocked with music, merchandise and hard-to-find collectibles, a pub tent and more.
The great vibe alone is worth the price of admission.
“This is a line-up that’s focused on top-notch musicianship and artistry, great entertainment and good times for people of all ages and walks of life” said Mike Hill, Artistic Director. “You can’t beat the lake-side setting, festival spirit, and the all-round high quality experience of Mariposa Folk Festival”.
Tickets are on sale here. This includes the Hot Weekend Pass for Young Adults (Ages 19-24) for only $59, and the Youth Pass (Ages 13-18) for only $15. Kids are admitted free!
