Brown University Folk Festival

The Brown University Folk Festival seeks to bring together the Brown, RISD, and Providence folk music communities through a day of music and lightheartedness.  The event is scheduled for Friday the 22nd and Saturday the 23rd.  Personally, I'd recommend Argh at 12:30 for interesting A Capella, and then holding out for the Erin Mceown performance at 7:30.  I'll probably drift in and out throughout the day, but the earliest I'll be there is 2PM.

From the website, here's the lineup:

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.

Henry, started Reno Motorcycle Riders
