We have waited all year for this! The Second Annual Richmond Folk Festival starts Friday, October 9th at 6:00pm. On and around Brown’s Island, this free concert is absolutely the best thing that Richmond does all year.

There is a small chance of  rain so dress appropriately and put some money in the damn bucket so we can keep getting this wonderful music festival for free.

I am always surprised and hear something unexpected, so wander around and take some chances. This is a great music festival.

This is the fifth year Richmond has had a music festival, the first 3 years it was the National Folk Festival (this July the 72nd festival was in Butte, Montana), then Richmond took up that banner and had its’ own Richmond Folk Festival, this being the second year.

Tenor player Roger Carroll from Chez Roue’ will be playing with Swamp Dogg on Friday at 9:00 at the Ukrops Stage, Saturday at 1:00 again at the Ukrops Stage, and later at 3:45 at the RTD Dance Pavilion.

The Richmond Indigenous Gourd Orchestra will be playing Saturday @ 1:00 and Sunday @ 2:00 Up the Hill.

I may try to learn how to yodel this year and of course you can always find me near the cajun music!

See you there!
