The inaugural North Carolina Folk Festival is the focus of our latest ATBR show, #141.  Arts Greensboro, businesses and the Piedmont Triad community are teaming up to continue where the National Folk Festival left off after its three-year run in Greensboro, NC.  

The National, which is run by the National Council for the Traditional Arts and moves to a new location every three years, was very successful in establishing the festival in Greensboro and proving that it could be popular and sustainable in our community.  

Check the NC Folk Festival webiste linked above, and hear this week's show for more information about a festival that continues a legacy and adds new ideas and interpretations.  -- Paul Brown
