ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — More than a dozen folk and roots music artists are coming together this weekend for the 36th annual Ann Arbor Folk Festival.
The festival kicks off Friday at 6:30 p.m. at The University of Michigan's Hill Auditorium. Performances will continue on Saturday night at the same time.
Artists featured at the event Friday include Detroit-born folk singer-songwriter Rodriguez. Saturday night's headliner is Seattle's The Head and the Heart.
Organizers say "each night includes a blend of well-known and up-and-coming artists" providing listeners "with an opportunity to hear artists" they "know and love while discovering great new talent."
The event is a fundraiser for The Ark, a nonprofit organization and concert venue in downtown Ann Arbor working to preserve folk, roots and ethnic music.
