Just like a real folk festival, but without all the sweaty people and the overpriced vegetarian food.
Classic and new folkies you'll hear on the Festival Radio:
The Carter Family: Folk pioneers singing traditional mountain music
Dave Carter and Tracy Grammer: Promising folk duet stilled in their prime. Put out three brilliant folk albums before Dave's untimely passing in mid-2002.
Eddie From Ohio: They're folkin' excellent! And they're from Virginia.
Fiddlers 4: Fiddle music supergroup with a wide stylistic range. If you like string band music, check these guys out.
Nanci Griffith: Brilliant folk performer.
Woody Guthrie: One of the first great folk troubadours of the modern era. This land is our land, and Woody deserves some of the credit.
Tim Harrison: Talented Canadian folk singer
Hem: This band defies description - a little bit folk, a little bit country, a little bit 70s pop with lush orchestration and the golden voice of Sally Ellyson.
Tish Hinojosa: Blends the sounds of both sides of the Texas/Mexico border
Bill Jones: Bill is short for Belinda, and she specializes in traditional songs, and originals that sound like traditional songs.
Christine Lavin: The godmother of modern folk, and one of the most engaging performers I've ever seen.
Tom Paxton: Modern folk pioneer still going strong
John Prine: One of the best songwriters of the last three decades.
The Queensberry Rules: acoustic folk group from England
Harvey Reid and Joyce Anderson: Husband and wife duo from New England. She fiddles up a storm and he is one of the most accomplished finger-style guitarists and autoharp players you'll find anywhere
Pete Seeger: The master.
