This weekend (1/28 & 29), The Ark in Ann Arbor, MI presents the 28th Annual Ann Arbor Folk Festival. If you are anywhere near and have any time at all this weekend, it looks to be two fantastic shows. Susan Werner is emceeing with appearances by Scottish fiddle champ Jeremy Kittel, Steppin’ In It, Glengarry Bhoys, the brilliant Vienna Teng, Martyn Joseph, multiple Grammy nominees the Blind Boys of Alabama, and the masterful Indigo Girls on Friday (tonight!). Saturday hear Richard Shindell (whom I love), Kruger Brothers, David Jones, Lynn Miles, IMBA Emerging Artist of the Year King Wilkie, George Bedard & the Kingpins, Whit Hill & The Postcards, the legendary Richard Thompson, and genius Keb’ Mo’. For all of that, tickets are very reasonable and The Ark is a great club in a great town. Let the North American Folk Fest season begin!
