NC Folk Festival Shows
September 7, 2019 @ 12:30 pm - 6:00 pm EDT
We will host three bands from 12:30-5:30 PM on Saturday, Sept 7th.
Last Rays of Sunday – If it’s Irish traditional music you’re looking for, look no further—you can count on The Last Rays of Sunday to always deliver a brilliant assortment of Irish tunes and songs in “pure drop” fashion. Three highly accomplished traditional musicians seamlessly blend their many talents when they join forces as “The Rays”— Megan Bennett Irby (vocal, bodhran), Don Penzien (guitar, whistle), and Bella Issakova (fiddle)—and they never fail to delight their audiences no matter the setting!
Cicada – Lee Atkinson, Sarah Atkinson, and Kate Musselwhite Tobey. Learn more: https://fiddleandbow.org/?s=Cicada
The Minor Swing Band – The Minor Swing Band specializes in re-invigorating the gypsy jazz genre. Taking inspiration from the great Django Reinhardt, members Keith Buckner, Jim Carson and Kevin Dollar and “Doc” Fribush play traditional tunes with frequent modern twists. Toe-tapping and finger-snapping, their live performances transport listeners back to 1930’s Paris!
The Medley Food Truck will also be here serving up delicious eats 1-8 PM.
