The Burnaby Blues and Roots festival is always a wonderful event, hosted at Deer Lake Park, a crown jewel of Burnaby British Columbia. This was our second festival in the past two years and the line up this year did not disappoint with our local pals Colleen Rennison and Jim Byrnes taking hold different stages, performances by Devin Cuddy, Nathan & The Zydeco Cha-Chas, and headline shows from Ruthie Foster, Lee Fields & The Expressions, and The Sheepdogs.

The day witnessed a sprinkling on the crowd who made it for the early shows, a rarity for the type of summer our region has faced this year. Although we were not able to get to all the performers we wanted, here is a selection of images we took for the day.
