Serena Ryder knew she had to keep the energy up hitting the stage after pop sensation Lorde’s set at Ottawa Folkfest. She came on stage guns blazing with her hit Stompa which quickly got the crowd into her set. Some of my other favorites included Fall, Little Bit of Red and What I Wouldn’t Do. This was my first time seeing Serena perform. She was very engaging on stage, taking time between songs to chat with the crowd. She even took a chance on playing a newly written song and got the crowd singing along with her.
