Grab your banjo, fiddle, ukelele or oud, or just listen to top folk musicians play theirs, at the 7th annual Brooklyn Folk Festival. It’s a jam fest of performances, workshops, even an old-fashioned square dance and a jug band.
The Brooklyn Folk Festival is April 17-19, with banjo and fiddle music, Hawaiian string, Middle Eastern, jazz and ragtime, and workshops that explore the history of down home folk music around the world.
It’s all happening at St. Ann’s Church, 157 Montague St., between Clinton and Henry Streets, in Brooklyn Heights. Tickets are from $20 for an afternoon or evening session to $80 for an unlimited three-day pass, directly from the sponsors, which include Down Home Radio.
Be inspired. Watch one or more of the music videos on the Brooklyn Folk Festival website.
