Come on out for a fantastic night of Aussie music. The Winnipeg Folk Festival is bringing Vance Joy to the Park Theatre on Monday, September 9.

The images will be cropped to fit the wide, panorama style you see at the top of the pages, so preference will be given to ones that still look good when cropped this way.
