Day two of the Brandon Folk, Music and Art Festival started this morning under cloudy skies, but the forecast for the evening has more promise, but it'll be chilly.

Environment Canada is calling for a few showers ending Saturday evening and the clouds will linger after the sun sets.

Saturday’s high is expected to reach 22° C.

There’s a risk of a thunderstorm early this evening with wind north of 30 km/h, dropping to 12 C.

Environment Canada has issued a warning for the Brandon area with funnel clouds possible today. An upper level low over southern Manitoba, bringing scattered showers and thunderstorms to the area today.

But the show must go on.

For Saturday and Sunday, afternoon workshop shows start at noon each day, including today’s men singing workshop at 12 p.m. with Martin Sexton, Matt Epp, Ben Caplan, Zachary Lancaster and Ben Figler.

Ben Caplan and the Casual Smokers will be headlining tonight. For a full schedule, visit brandonfolkfestival.ca
