Folk singer Craig Cardiff returns to Pen-Y-Bryn Farm Aug. 17.

Craig Cardiff returns to Pen-Y-Bryn Farm Aug. 17.

Cardiff’s poster for his upcoming concert in Kersley promises “Folk music! Romance! Intrigue! Comedy! Mass sing-along! Slow dancing!” and anyone who’s seen the Ottawa-based folk singer perform knows this is all possible in one night.

With a voice described as “warm, scratched, sad and sleepy,” Cardiff sings songs that expose the human condition, putting a magnifying glass to the clumsier and less proud moments. He can turn any setting into an intimate affair, infusing his music and lyrics with an uncompromising humanism.

The 2012 Juno Award nominee and Canadian Folk Music Award nominee has released 16 albums and continues to find inspiration all around him.

His latest album, a double album called Love Is Louder (Than All This Noise) Part 1 &2, was inspired by his Book of Truths, blank notebooks he often passes around at shows. He asks his fans to share something truthful in these books – a story, a confession, a hope, a secret.

Cardiff will share songs from Love Is Louder and perhaps even some new music when he performs an intimate solo show Thursday, Aug. 17 in the Bunkhouse at Pen-Y-Bryn Farm at 2911 Kersley Dale Landing Rd.

Doors open at 7:30 p.m., and the music will start at 8 p.m.

Tickets for this all-ages show are $20 in advance or $25 at the door. Advance tickets are available at Circle ‘S’ Western Wear or by calling or texting Lindsay at 1-250-510-5508.
