This is the time of year when one's frustration is not finding something to do, but not being able to find time to do all one wants to do! Saturday and Sunday, March 24 and 25, is the 18th annual Phoenix Folk Traditions Music Festival. AND, it's free, with a free shuttle from the parking lot at 15th Avenue and Osborn to the festival at Encanto Park.
We picked up a copy of the complete schedule, and I'm so sorry we can only go on Sunday! Each day, there are performances scheduled each half-hour, at seven venues within the park. There are some workshops scheduled throughout the day, for those people who are musicians - we're just listeners =) . There's an "Interactive Guitar Fingerstyle Workshop," and an Autoharp Workshop, for example. We plan to get there for the first performance at 10:00 AM and stay until the last song at 5:00 PM.
