Brooklyn Folk Festival Logo by you.

Hello everybody!  Look out for the 2012 Brooklyn Folk Festival coming your way over the weekend of May 18th – 20th.  Gonna be fun!

Down Home Radio host Eli Smith is proud to announce the 4th annual Brooklyn Folk Festival, to be held at the Jalopy Theater and Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition in Brooklyn, NY – Friday May 18th thru Sunday May 20th.  The festival will feature the best young talent from Brooklyn’s exploding folk music scene as well as luminaries from the generation that made the 1960’s New York City folk music revival.  The music featured will include traditional styles such as old-time string band music, blues, jug band music, traditional music of Mexico, the Balkans, Eastern Europe and West Africa, local author-vocalists and more!  There will be concerts throughout the day as well as workshops on various musical styles, film screenings and a Sunday afternoon square dance!  This year will also herald the return by popular demand of the “Banjo Toss.”  The person who throws a banjo the farthest will win a free banjo!
