Hey Listeners,

It’s here. This is the week. It’s Folk Fest time! I’m going to play tracks from a bunch of bands you can see this weekend. I’ll also revisit some of the bands my wife and Helen nave had a chance to host over the years and also play some bands that I put in my Richmond Folk Festival Hall of Fame for their appearances at the festival. It all starts Friday night. Don’t miss it.
