Show Information

At it’s core, folk music has always been about telling the stories of the people. Spreading the news.

Often it’s about finding tales long told and bringing them to new ears and sometimes it’s about telling those stories for the first time. At For the Love of Song three of folk’s finest storytellers will be bringing their mutual passion together for one very special evening.

*Please note, Folk Festival weekend passes do not include admission to this event and tickets for this show must be purchased separately.
