Virtual Ann Arbor Folk Festival
The 44th annual Ann Arbor Folk Festival that benefits The Ark is “at home” with streamed performances from cherished #ArkFamily and friends. Each night includes a blend of well-known and up-and-coming artists performing 20-40 minute sets, providing listeners with an opportunity to hear artists you know and love while discovering great new talent. It will be hosted by Chelsea's Jeff Daniels and the lineup delivers the full spectrum of “Ark music,” presenting a taste of what’s happening on the leading edge of acoustic music while delving into the very heart of folk and roots traditions.
