Read on for the latest news and some exciting new things at this year’s Flagstaff Folk Festival!
A draft version of this year’s schedule has been posted on the schedule page. Great thanks to all applicants this year! We built the schedule as the applications came in. The schedule filled up fast. We apologize if we did not get those on the schedule. We have a hold list and will contact you if schedule changes. Please let us know next year on the application.
Some things to look forward to at this year’s festival
We will have our traditional five stages. The Hillside Workshop Area will have workshops ranging from songwriting workshops with the Arizona Songwriters Association, banjo, flatpicking, Celtic and Ukulele styles. We will have the Pine Circle and Jam Area where we will have the young jammers opening the festival with playing and hopefully inspiring future young jammers. This area will also host Ukulele, fiddle tune, and bluegrass jams as well as hosted songwriters circles. Kids activities throughout the weekend. More details will be posted in the coming weeks.
This year we would like to encourage full Sunday participation by ending with a “Will the Circle Be Unbroken……“ big band jam led by Ken Ralston and Larry Peterson.
A few new things!
This year we will have an exciting Saturday night concert with the Roots and Boots ALLSTAR Band, featuring many of the instructors from the Roots and Boots Music Camp! The concert will be a paid event separate from the festival. The festival attendees and volunteers will get a discount. For advance ticket sales and more information please go here, or follow the link in the menu above. Also please visit the Roots and Boots Music Camp page for more information about that great event!
For those who come to these things for the jamming, in addition to the wonderful jam areas at the festival, this year we will have a camp set up on FR 164b, which is just a few miles north of the festival grounds (A map will be posted soon). Camping will be primitive, but FFOTM will provide a porta potty. For information on camping contact Larry Peterson on the FFF website.
We would like to give gratitude and thanks to the volunteers that made last years festival truly possible. This year is no different. WE NEED VOLUNTEERS to make this year run smoothly. Please go here to sign up, or follow the link in the menu above..
Special thanks to all our partners and sponsors, especially The Flagstaff Arts Council & Coconino Center for the Arts, and The Arizona Historical Society & Pioneer Museum!
