2019 FolkWorks Folk/Roots Festival
Much of American roots music and dance derives from the African continent and was brought to the States on slave ships. It is here where the gumbo evolvescombining songs, drumming, banjo and fiddle and dance with European traditions. The result has been everything from old-time Appalachian string band music to jug band music, square, round and tap dancing, blues and rocknroll. Come help us celebrate these traditions.

Question: The Early Bird evening concert says (6:00 p.m.). I assume these are the tickets for the 7:00 concert?? Also when you go to buy tix it says "10 a.m., but I assume we'll still get evening tix. Thanks.
Answer: If you click on Evening Tickets, it shows the date for the festival and the festival opening time. However, the start time for the evening concert is 7:30pm (changed from 7:00pm). Doors open at 7:00pm.
