Folk Festival

Get ready to Find Your Folk! The annual Ann Arbor Folk Festival, a fundraiser for The Ark, returns to University of Michigan’s Hill Auditorium for two dynamic and different nights of folk and roots music on Friday, January 27 and Saturday, January 28, 2017.
 

at Hill Auditorium
825 North University
Ann Arbor, Michigan 48109

The first Ann Arbor Folk Festival took place in 1977, and since then it’s grown in scope and depth. The range of genres and styles is large, the sense of tradition when all the evening’s performers join together in song at the end of the Saturday show even stronger.

All funds raised through the Festival benefit The Ark, Ann Arbor’s non-profit home for folk, roots, and ethnic music.
