Posts Tagged ‘Freshlyground’

In late July, the group Freshlyground performed at the Vancouver Folk Festival. Education without Borders was there to meet them as well as to raise awareness amongst festival goers about the needs of school children in Cape Town and South Africa as a whole.

Freshlyground’s sounds are a lively mix of Indie rock, African folk, and jazz. Band members hail from South Africa, Mozambique, and Zimbabwe. Education without Borders volunteers were able to meet and greet the band members and also take pictures. The presence of Freshlygound also helped bring crowds to the EwB booth and in the words of one EwB volunteer, “ in one swoop, you made EwB ‘hip’ and ‘cool’ and we made a lot of new friends.”

Thanks to all of our volunteers and Freshlyground for helping brighten up a rather wet Vancouver weekend! Check out some photos!
