This year’s artwork was inspired by my time in Banff (as well as the Alps) where ravens are a constant presence in the skies. In many cultures there’s the belief that ravens and alpine crows carry the souls of skiers and climbers that lost their lives in the mountains. They fly above us, watching over us as we venture into the high alpine.”

Live streaming from their hometown – and historic Silverplume Playhouse – in the mountains of Colorado, bluegrass band Rapidgrass will headline the Banff Festival Wrap Party.
Rapidgrass are no strangers to Banff or to Rab. Guitarist and lead vocalist Mark Morris is a Rab sponsored athlete and backcountry skier.
After playing the 2018 Wrap Party and spending a week playing in the mountains and writing songs, Rapidgrass had the honour of being invited to return to Banff Center in 2019 for a music residency where they wrote and recorded a new album, Take Him River.
Rapidgrass will close the festival along with a fundraiser to benefit young film makers.
