69th Annual National Folk Festival

I went with 2 friends yesterday from noon until 4pm and it was great. I got to hear such wonderful folk artists as VishTen, some Persian as well as Chinese traditional music, Elana James, Cindy Cashdollar, the Junkyard Band as well as many others as we walked to various venues and checked out the One Thousand Villages Marketplace. There were at least 2 I'm sorry I missed (the other being Linda Lay) but hope to catch them on a cd sometime.

The National Folk Festival will be moving to Butte, Montana next year which is a beautiful place and should make it easier for folks to get into the folksy mood as they won't be in the middle of a very urban city such as this one.
