FLIP is an annual music and arts festival in Lethbridge, Alberta. FLIP aims to create an encouraging and inclusive local music scene. FLIP Fest celebrates and supports women, femmes and non-binary artists.

FLIP Fest Maker Market at the Southern Alberta Art Gallery (from 1-5 PM):

2 PM - Amy Nelson  The sweet, sad longing and play of words and phrases, delivered in a voice from days far gone; holding the plaintive echoes of the struggles of women who bore the weight of abject sorrow and hardships, reaching through the ages and channeled through this small figure of a girl. Amy Nelson began her music career as an old time banjoist, singing songs older than the hills. As time wore on, she began to dedicate herself to not only the preservation of the rural folk music she became known for, but by writing songs that reflected her own view of the world too. Amy's songs display a veracity and rawness that is uniquely her own.
