I can’t attend the Richmond Folk Festival this year even though I promised myself not to miss it after going last year and having a ball.
I even volunteered at the Folk Fest last year helping greet some of the musicians who were playing at the three-day event.
I won’t be there this year. Instead, I’m covering a different three-day cultural festival in Lafayette. Today is the last day of Festivals Acadians et Creoles.
This festival celebrates two distinct but forever interwoven cultures including their cowboy music roots.
It’s not just one festival but three that were combined after being held separately to honor the music, food and arts of this rich south Louisiana culture.
So I’m sorry I’m missing the Folk Festival but so far I’m having one heck of a time at Festivals.
