PREVIEW: 44th Annual Ann Arbor Folk Fest – Night 2

On Saturday, January 30th at 7pm ET, The Ark will be presenting the second night of the 44th Ann Arbor Folk Fest – at home edition! Besides being a fundraiser for The Ark, “Ann Arbor’s non-profit home for folk, roots, and ethnic music,” the Folk Fest is also a chance to enjoy some great music. Featured performers on Saturday night include Bruce Cockburn, Dar Williams, David Bromberg, Todd Snider, George Winston, Vance Gilbert, Dom Flemons, Matt Andersen, Crys Matthews, Sierra Ferrell, Andrea von Kampen, and the RFD Boys (live from The Ark stage), with Jeff Daniels, MC. The artists are each expected to perform 20-40 minutes sets.

I am excited for this event because it promises to be a chance to enjoy “live” music being streamed real-time, which is the closest thing we can get to a concert while staying safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. Besides, it is just something to look forward to when so many things have been cancelled!

To purchase a streaming pass for the Ann Arbor Folk Festival, visit Passes begin at $25, and all ticket bundles include a tax-deductible contribution to The Ark.
