Folk Fest Warm Up: On a Winter’s Night
January 18, 2024 @ 8:00 pm $40, $75, $125
Folk Fest Warm-up: On A Winter’s Night brings together four veteran singer-songwriters – all longtime friends of The Ark and the Ann Arbor Folk Festival – who are among the brightest stars of the singer/songwriter movement over the past three decades. Join us in the cozy, intimate space of The Ark’s Ford Listening Room for an in-the-round performance with Ark favorites John Gorka, Patty Larkin, Lucy Kaplansky, and Cliff Eberhardt. In 1994 Christine Lavin gathered these top singer-songwriters together, along with other folk and Americana artists to showcase music of the Winter Season on the now-classic “On A Winter’s Night” CD, followed by several years of touring collaborations. These artists have released dozens of recordings and toured steadily through the decades, with fond memories of their touring days together. The winter season is again celebrated by these unique and popular performers, back together by popular demand.
As we get ready to roll out the full details of the 47th Ann Arbor Folk Festival next month, we’re excited to announce that Bank of Ann Arbor will once again join The Ark as Folk Fest 2024’s Presenting Sponsor. “Each year, the Ann Arbor Folk Festival surprises us with its exceptional lineup of performers,” says Tim Marshall, president and CEO of Bank of Ann Arbor. “This year is no exception. Once again, we’re proud and excited to be the presenting sponsor of one of our country’s great musical events, here in one of America’s culturally rich towns. Great musicians are always welcome and appreciated in Ann Arbor.
