This Saturday marks the return of the Ferdinand Folk Festival to Ferdinand’s 18th Street Park.
The free festival features nationally-acclaimed musicians and renowned regional acts. In an ideal, lush setting—a large, gently sloping lawn surrounded by trees—patrons bring picnic blankets, lawn chairs, and an appreciation for diverse music such as Americana, folk, roots blues, reggae, etc. Nearby, on a small, round stage in the heart of a grove of trees, local and regional singer-songwriters play for the art market crowd.
Centered around music, this year’s headliner is The Last Revel. The Last Revel last performed at the 2018 Folk Festival and is back with an original line-up. They will close out the night playing from 7:30 to 9 p.m.
The Last Revel blends the genres of Folk, Old Time String Band and Indie Rock to create a unique sound known as Front Porch Americana. Their most recent EP was released in May of this year, featuring five brand new songs, including lead single “Welcome to Hell” and marks the first time the original trio has recorded in over five years.
