Halifax Urban Folk Festival

Loading Events

August 28 - September 4

The Halifax Urban Folk Festival is a celebration of songs and the people that write them.

HUFF’s mandate, in addition to presenting and promoting professional songwriters in an urban downtown setting, is to provide opportunities for our artists here in Halifax to collaborate and perform with visiting headlining artists. As a result, the Halifax All-Stars came to be. The All-Stars is a band consisting of a rotation of some of Halifax’s most talented players, and is one of the most unique and revered features of the festival. Each visiting HUFF headliner arrives in Halifax to rehearse (at Joel Plaskett’s studio) and perform with their own specially curated All-Star band. As a result of these collaborative relationships we have seen some of our region’s brightest artists writing new material and playing with internationally renowned musicians, and creating lifelong creative partnerships.
