The Montreal Folk Festival on the Canal was co-founded by music industry veterans who are passionate about folk music and who felt strongly that the city needed an outdoor folk festival.
Hello Darlin’ Productions and Hyperbole Music partner up!
Hello Darlin’ Productions
Hello Darlin’ Productions is a multi-service arts presentation company specializing in traditional, folk, roots, blues, and bluegrass presentation, production, and artist management. Directors Matthew Large and Rebecca Anderson created Hello Darlin’ in 2002 to fill an underdeveloped gap in the Montreal arts presentation scene. Their efforts to bring upper-echelon folk musicians to Montreal and the surrounding area has resulted in a revitalization of the once-heralded local folk music community.
The jewel in the Hello Darlin’ crown is the Wintergreen Concert Series featuring the best in Canadian folk music. The popular series houses one major show per month from September through April and has been running since 2002.
In addition to the Wintergreen Concert Series, Hello Darlin’ Productions organizes and presents countless other concerts and musical showcases.
Hyperbole Music is a dynamic music and entertainment company that specializes in events that offer attendees truly memorable experiences. The signature events from Hyperbole Music are the Decanted Series and the Festival Folk et Vins de Dunham:
The Hyperbole Music Decanted Series is part wine tasting, part concert and an all-around remarkable wine experience! We believe that the wine experience is just as important as the quality of the wine. Combining the right atmosphere with the right music and the right people is what makes these evenings so memorable. It’s about making wine more accessible, less pretentious, and more fun by pairing it with live music in a beautiful venue.
The Festival Folk et Vins de Dunham is a seasonal event where attendees have an opportunity to discover Quebec music and taste local products. Held in the village of Dunham, Quebec, just one hour outside of Montreal, the Festival features many emerging folk/roots music artists from Quebec, as well as international touring artists.
