Friday is the day! The kickoff for the American Folk Festival 2013! I'm very excited for this year's festival because I think the mix of music is amazing! (of course, it's always amazing) To help you plan your weekend, I thought I'd share a few videos of some of the performers that will be on the Bangor Waterfront this weekend!

The Legendary Singing Stars will bring their modernized gospel to Bangor. Amazing harmonies with an R&B influence are sure to delight!

I always love when the Festival includes some Irish music. (must be my Celtic heritage!) This year, it's Winnie Horan on the fiddle, Mick McAuley on vocals and accordian, and Colm O'Caoimh on guitar! I can't wait!

The American Folk Festival will be on the Bangor Waterfront Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. You can enjoy music and food from around the world, the dance tent, marketplace, and so much more! And the best people-watching anywhere! Looks like the weather is going to be great, too!

Remember, the Festival is free, but organizers really hope you'll be generous with the Bucket Brigade to help keep it going year after year! For more information and a complete schedule, log onto the American Folk Festival website. And have a blast!
