Ottawa Grassroots Festival


Ottawa Grassroots Festival has just finished its 6th year. In celebration I am launching this web page to (finally) showcase the photos taken over these six years.

OGF came from the people who brought us Ottawa Folk Festival in its last years at Britannia. When it became obvious that the new OFF, under Mark Monihan at Bluesfest Inc, was not going to give folk music and community a home, Bob Nesbitt and a number of old folkies launched OGF. It is small and it is friendly and it brings great local music in a family-friendly way to a loyal audience.

I've been with them the whole time and have, more or less, managed photography. I'm not much of a manager so it has mostly meant that I took the pictures, although there have been some great photographers who have volunteered over the years.

Here are the galleries that I have generated over the years.
