The Good Folk Festival brings together music and art

Posted: Updated:

Good Folk Fest is an art and music festival featuring over 80 local, regional and internationally known outsider, visionary and folk artists with 26 diverse musical performers.

Good Folk Fest's mission is to bring together old and new traditions of making art and music.

The Kentucky Center for African American Heritage, a former historical trolley barn remodel and re-purposed, is the venue for the event which goes along with the festival's theme. The center will be filled with booths of artists from all over the country selling their goods like woodcarver LaVon Williams and contemporary graffiti artist Eddie Santiago.

Musical artists perform on three stages. Styles include blues, rock, one man bands, traditional string band music, experimental sound ensembles and other audio projects. High energy performer, Baby Gramps, headlines the festival. He plays acoustic antique resonator National Steel guitars, and sings his own unique arrangements.

Art Cars get their own special viewing area.  It is truly a mixture of sights and sounds and a celebration of raw creativity and crafty resourcefulness.

Admission is $10 each day for adults. Children 12 and under get in free.
