Folk Musicians Entertain on the CTrain

Here's Calgary's own Dojo Workhorse performing on the CTrain. Dojo Workhorse will be playing at this year's Folk Festival.

As part of Calgary Transit’s popular Musicians in Motion program, local artists will be riding and performing on various CTrains starting Monday, July 19 until Friday, July 23 to celebrate and promote the Calgary Folk Music Festival.

“We hope our customers will enjoy some of the great local talent we will have on our CTrains,” said Calgary Transit spokesman Ron Collins. “Calgary Transit is a keen supporter of the arts and culture in our great city.”

Kenna Burima, the Calgary Folk Music Festival’s Artistic Associate said "it's sometimes easy to forget about the outside world when we are down on Prince's Island. By having festival artists playing on the CTrain, we 'd like to think we're bringing our festival to all corners of the city."

Calgary Transit invites the public to join them by riding in the middle car of each of a number of CTrains between 9:30am and 11:30am.
