      The 2022 Mission Folk Music Festival--which takes place from July 22 to 24 at Fraser River Heritage Park--has announced its lineup.

      Some of the highlights of the event were mentioned by the festival's artistic director, Michelle Demers Shaevitz, in a press release issued this morning.

      “It’s a thrill for us to return in person to Fraser River Heritage Park for our 35th Anniversary festival”, says Demers Shaevitz. “I’m excited to welcome folks back to the park to share some amazing global music with them. This year’s lineup offers festival-goers everything from singer-songwriter folk to Celtic, blues, bluegrass and soul to the uniquely amazing nu folk of Estonia’s Puuluup, the electrifying sound of Chile’s Golosa La Orquesta, and for our Saturday night mainstage final act, the dynamic Québécois zydeco of Le Winston Band--and much more!

      "From the heart of BC’s Rockies, Shred Kelly will help kick off the festival Friday night, and a true Canadian treasure, William Prince will close the show on Sunday. And in between--there’s an incredible range of tunes to enjoy. We welcome everyone from our longtime fans to folks who’ll be experiencing Mission for the first time.”

      Other performers not mentioned by Demers Shaevitz include Taiwan's Kanatal, Cameroon's Clerel, Bellingham's Robert Sarazin Blake, Ontario's Amanda Rheaume and Graham Lindsay, Newfoundland's Quote the Raven, and B.C.'s Ronnie Dean Harris, Good Medicine Songs, the Crescent Sky, and Strongbow and Wry.
