Kiln Sessions at Medalta Potteries

One of my favorite parts of this year's Tongue on the Post Folk Festival in Medicine Hat, Alberta was the kiln sessions that took place at Medalta Potteries over the weekend. The acoustics and intimate atmosphere of historic kiln #2 provided an incredible backdrop for some truly memorable musical performances. Of all the locations that hosted the folk fest over the week, there's no denying that this one was especially authentic to culture in the Hat. 

I took in performances from Brady Enslen, Brett Nelson, Karla Adolphe, and Anni DeGroot. In each case I was so impressed with the variety of styles and approaches that each artist took. There were even some nice moments where the audience sang along, creating a beautiful reverb in that historic space. It was a beautiful experience.
