Oh yeah, the A2 Folk Festival is this weekend

By  |  0 Comments

I’m not normally real big on giving away free advertising, but I got a request from a cool person I met a few years back who was casting about for career advice. Turns out, she’s done the poster for this year’s Ann Arbor Folk Festival (looks like you made a good career move, Emily Cedar.) So — consider this a roundabout way of reminding y’all that the Folk Fest is this weekend. In fact, I picked up a ticket to see Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit on Friday. I first tuned in to Isbell during his stint with the Drive-By Truckers some years back. Saturday’s headliner is big-name-in-the-business John Prine. 

There weren’t too many Friday balcony seats left when I logged in Monday, so good luck to you if you haven’t gotten yours yet. Check for ’em here.

Here’s that press release:
