This long-time mid-Michigan event features traditional arts, dance, culture and music from around the world. WKAR’s Current State will broadcast live from the festival Friday at 6 p.m.

Today we hear from one of the musicians who will perform this weekend. Lee Murdock is one of the foremost interpreters of Great Lakes folk music, and Current State's Melissa Benmark asked him what drew him to the music of this region.
