Come on out to the Great Lakes Folk Festival on August 10-12.
This is the 11th year of the popular festival that brings you music from around the world, along with a hefty and dose of international and fascinating cultural and traditional arts exhibits, an international ethnic food court, children's activities, a community sing, a musicians jam and more!
Also featured are some intriguing and revealing showcases of various genres featuring performers from a variety of acts talking about the techniques they use to make their sound unique.
WKAR will be emceeing events on the dance stage with music that includes Zydeco, merengue, polka, bluegrass and Armenian. And, while the dancing is going on, we'll be at our tent near the stage (if we're not out dancing ourselves!) . So stop by, say hello and pick up some vintage WKAR items to take home! Look for Tim Zeko, Earle Robinson, Kevin Lavery, Bill Richards and Jeanie Croope -- we'll be looking for you!
The folk fest is always a first-rate event, held in downtown East Lansing and sponsored and coordinated by the MSU Museum. Best of all, it's absolutely free and you can easily wander from one stage to another.
As overheard last year, "If you don't like what's playing here, go over to one of the other stages and odds are you'll find something you love!"
