Bolton's Folk Festival next weekend!
For those who enjoy the free-spirited lyrical ballads mixed with songs with social justice themes, there's Bolton Landing's own Fabulous Folk Festival set for 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Sunday Sept. 5 in gorgeous Rogers Memorial Park.
The free event features a group of folk singers who have roots in the southern Adirondacks and central New York.
Set to perform are Dan Berggren, Peggy Lynn, the Nancy Walker Trio and Saratoga Faire. Berggren has been collecting, writing and singing folk music of the Adirondacks for the past 30 years.
Award-winning folksinger and songwriter Peggy Lynn has recorded four solo CDs and the same number with other artists. The park setting allows children have active fun nearby in a playground while others enjoy the folk music.
There is no better way to enjoy folk music than in such a beautiful setting with the shimmering waters of Lake George in the background.
