Folk Fest

It's time once again for the Philadelphia Folk Fest, which starts tonight with a special concert for campers. Three years ago I wrote that Fest offers "unexpected, luminous moments of musical or visual experience," such as a hula hoop dance to Doc Watson.

The Folk Fest is once again offering a stellar lineup including Hoots and Hellmouth, Jeff Tweedy of Wilco, Chris Smither, Erin McKeown, Taj Mahal and Richard Thompson.

But for me the most exciting performers are often those I've never seen or heard before. What new music will surprise and delight this year? The only way to find out is to go. Tell 'em TommyWonk sent you.
