Podcast 122: Following the Sound – Folk Fest Past Present and Future

Sunset at fest


It’s been two weeks since the last notes of Los Lobos filled the air up at The Old Poole Farm in Schwenksville, and I’m still thinking about it. The 55th anniversary of the Philadelphia Folk Fest, the longest continuously running folk fest in North America, has come and gone; but to the Fest faithful, it’s memories live on for years….Or until the next Fest hits in mid August 2017. This year brought some amazing musicians and collaborations together for a spectacular 3 days of audible pleasure. From Del and Dawg to The Sheepdogs to Anderson East and the Lone Bellow covering Mariah Carey’s ‘Baby’, it was a great time had by all involved. So for this weeks’ Shady Groove Podcast, I’ve put together a great set of music from Folk Fest artists past and present…and probably future. Sit back, relax and enjoy.
