Chicago Folk and Roots Festival 2011

July 10, 2011 @ 12:00 pm - 9:30 pm

$5 - $10

It’s that time again! Round up your friends, grab your kids, pack a blanket and sunscreen, and grab a spot on the grass of Welles Park and set up camp because you’re not going to want to miss a minute of this year’s 14th Annual Chicago Folk & Roots Festival!

Saturday’s Main Stage highlights include quintessential Texas blues rocker Delbert McClinton, Louisiana’s favorite Cajun sons Lost Bayou Ramblers, Austin’s rockabilly queen Rosie Flores, and New Orleans brass band sensation Glen David Andrews. Sunday night finds us swaying to the sounds of Tuareg guitar great Bombino, grooving to Congolese rumba-meets-hip hop-soul with Baloji, and finishing the Fest on our feet with the sounds of salsa and Latin jazz with Maraca!

Of course Folk & Roots is not only about the Main Stage music. Check back often for line up announcements for our family friendly Kids Tent, our interactive Dance Tent, our faculty showcase at the Staff Stage, and the open, participatory jams at the Gazebo. Watch this space!
