Ani DiFranco (photo: Benko Photographics)Only Friday tickets remain for this weekend's 20th Annual Folks Festival (Aug 13-15)...

With all the inspiration, creativity, and emotion emanating from the Song School here on the Ranch right now, we wish we had a more artful way to say it. But we just need to share the simple, but urgent message: three-day passes and Saturday/Sunday single-day tickets are completely sold-out. If you're hoping to join us for this weekend's Folks Festival, you should purchase Friday tickets right now (!) at or 800-624-2422. Right now.

-- 20th Folks Festival --
Gregory Alan Isakov (photo: Joshua Elioseff)Gregory Alan Isakov's presence on Planet Bluegrass has been growing like the powerful dynamics in his music. He quietly and humbly won the Telluride Troubadour contest in 2007; he's been building in energy and intensity with his own sold-out Wildflower Concert last fall; and now with 2 critically-acclaimed albums his music completely surrounds and engulfs us. We're thrilled to announce that this August, he'll be at the center of Planet Bluegrass as the latest addition to the 20th Folks Festival lineup.

Folks Festivarian (photo: Benko Photographics)The weather forecast is for mid-80's and sun – perfect for an occasional dip in the St. Vrain and some quality tarp time with your festivarian family. David Wilcox plays to the gorgeous Lyons red rock sunset on Friday night; Ani DiFranco closes the opening evening of music with the dramatic Perseid Meteor Shower overhead.

Chatham County LineIf you've never experienced the magic of the Folks Festival – bring along a tarp, a picnic (no glass, no outside alcohol), your reusable water bottle (free filtered water onsite), and your entire family (kids 12 and under are free). New Belgium beer, wine, and mead is available inside the festival as well as a diverse lineup of local food vendors - from dumplings to fish tacos, Greek salads to savory crepes. And be sure to bring a couple extra bucks for our craft vendors - some of the area's finest painters, jewelers, hammocks, henna tattoos, a wide variety of men's and women's clothing, and those iconic Folks Festival fairy wings.

-- Wildflower Concerts --
Chatham County LineChatham County Line just returned from Norway where they were nominees for Country Album of the Year at the Norwegian Grammies (Spelleman Awards). Rabid fans of the North Carolina acoustic quartet are everywhere: at their last SXSW performance members of R.E.M. were front-row, waiting around afterward for Chatham County Line to autograph CDs.

Folks Festivarian (photo: Benko Photographics)Twenty years in the making, we can't wait to share this historic celebration with you this weekend. The songs, stories, and summertime you'll never forget. We'll see you in Lyons in just 2 days...
