Sled Island 2017 recap

Sled Island 2017 marks my eighth year as a member as a member of the photo crew for the festival. And it is one of the most challenging jobs I have done...but in the end it is also usually the most fun! This year was especially memorable because Kris (aka Valiska) achieved one of his long term dreams: to play a set at Central United during Sled Island.

Kris playing at Central United was definitely a highlight, but my other most memorable show was FOONYAP playing at Studio Bell Performance Hall. I fell in love with her music earlier this year when Kris played her album for me and her live set did not disappoint!

Here's to the second decade of Sled Island!
