The Winnipeg Folk Festival revealed its day schedules this week, revealing a number of interesting workshop combos for the July 10-14 event.

On Friday, for example, both members of folk duo Whitehorse, will front back-to-back workshops on the Shady Grove stage. Melissa McClelland mentors at 12:30 p.m., while Luke Doucet takes over at 2 p.m. Also Friday, Texas singer/songwriter Hayes Carll performs at 12:30 p.m. on the Snowberry stage and Canadian legend Sylvia Tyson performs on the Bur Oak stage at 4 p.m.

Among the Saturday daytime highlights is a workshop titled 1974, where Tyson will join another original folk fest performer, Leon Redbone, Stringband, Ken Whiteley & the Levy Sisters and Bob King on the Bur Oak stage, with Peter Paul Van Camp as host. That program starts at 4 p.m.

The Big Bluestem stage should prove to be a popular daytime hangout on Sunday, with Whiteley, Redbone, David Lindley and the Blind Boys of Alabama scheduled to perform prior to the Sunday mainstage concert.

While construction online has led to the Folk Fest releasing its 2013 smartphone app for the festival, construction of the new village tower has begun at the festival site in Birds Hill Provincial Park.
