The 2013 Albuquerque Folk Festival gathers musicians from various folk traditions for a weekend of song and dance with the main activities on Saturday, June 1. Patrons can sleep in the free camping area and have access to any show on the schedule of live band performances, jam sessions, and dance workshops.

Albuquerque Folk Festival

In an outdoor setting filled with acoustic music and dancing, the Albuquerque Folk Festival perpetuates the American folk tradition and engages the community in international music performances. During the festival, three performance stages will showcase the talent of more than 20 musical acts including nationally-recognized bluegrass duo Tim O’Brien and Darrell Scott, North American roots musicians Birds of Chicago, Grammy Award-winner Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, Old Time musicians Spencer and Rains, and National Hammered Dulcimer champion Tina Gugeler. Regional performers include The Rifters, Steve Cormier, Felix y Gatos, Breaking Blue, and many more.

Festival goers who prefer to strum their own instruments can compete alongside a random group of instrumentalists at the band scramble, sign up to perform on a first-come first-serve basis at the Sign-Up Stage, or play in open jam sessions. Workshops teach techniques for playing instruments such as the bodhrán, banjo, and harmonica, while dance lessons focus on how to move freely during contra or execute a Highland Schottische without losing your kilt in front of passing strangers.
