The festival’s focus is on traditional forms of folk music and dance from a variety of cultures. Because it was inspired by similar events held in the United Kingdom, a significant part of the content is British and Irish music. However, an equally significant number of acts represent a variety of world cultures and the multinational character that is Canada today.
