Pouring rain and cloudy skies over Folk on the Rocks couldn’t hold back this year’s festival, back in full swing after two years affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Headlining the Yellowknife festival’s 2022 edition were Joel Plaskett, Donovan Woods and Haviah Mighty, who closed out the Canadian North Main Stage over the weekend.
The Trade-Offs and Saltwater Hank were among the standout acts at the Cabin Stage. Ellen Froese admirably played through a torrential rain storm, with some audience members finding the spirit to dance despite the deluge.
By Sunday evening, the clouds gave way to a glorious sunset as Plaskett and Mo Kenney took to the main stage, followed by the Yellowknives Dene Drummers.
Here are some of our favourite photos from the weekend.
