Get ready to Find Your Folk! The annual Ann Arbor Folk Festival, a fundraiser for The Ark, returns to Hill Auditorium for two dynamic and different nights of folk and roots music on Friday, January 25, and Saturday, January 26, 2013 beginning at 6:30 p.m. each night. The Folk Festival will celebrate its 36th year with a selection of the world's finest traditional and contemporary performers. Each night includes a blend of well-known and up-and-coming artists, providing you with an opportunity to hear artists you know and love while discovering great new talent.
The voice is unmistakable – immediately identifiable by those that know it and intensely intriguing to those who don’t. It belongs to Dallas Green, perhaps better known as the man who writes, records, and performs under the moniker of City and Colour. He will make his Ann Arbor Folk Festival debut as Friday night’s headliner. Friday night’s program also features Rodriguez, the enigmatic singer-songwriter whose rediscovery is at the heart of the astounding, Sundance Film Festival Award-wining film, Searching for Sugar Man. We’re thrilled to present him for the first time at the Ann Arbor Folk Festival. The acclaimed band, Trampled By Turtles rounds out the headlining bill. Daytrotter calls them “lit up and charged [with] four-part harmonies that are close to being crystalline.” We think they are a great addtion to the Friday night lineup!
Americana meets The Beatles in the sound of Seattle's The Head and the Heart. There is in this music a counter-cultural optimism, with roots that grow deep and melodies that lodge themselves far into that place inside you where the head meets the heart. We are proud to welcome them as our Saturday night headliner. Also featured on the Saturday night bill are Lucinda Williams, named “America’s best songwriter” by Time Magazine, and longtime Ark friend and favorite Dar Williams. Saturday night’s program is rounded out by several artists delving into the heart of folk and roots traditions, plus, we'll get a boost of energy and a little something new from Brother Joscephus and the Love Revolution .
Former Men At Work front-man, born entertainer and master of the one-man show, Colin Hay, will bring his humor and talent to this year’s Festival, serving as our Master of Ceremonies both nights.
