43rd Annual Ann Arbor Folk Festival

. January 1, 2020.

Mike Seeger once referred to folk as “all the music that fits between the cracks.” Well, given the number of remarkably talented artists lined up to play at the 43rd Annual Ann Arbor Folk Festival, those cracks must have a lot of room in them. This annual fundraiser for our area’s musical institution, The Ark, will take place on January 31 and February 1. Over two nights at Hill Auditorium, 14 different acts will take the stage, including folk olk supergroup Calexico and Iron & Wine, Nathaniel Rateliff (playing solo), the witty and engaging songs of Ingrid Michaelson, the gentle and heartwarming folk of Mandolin Orange and many more!

$45-110 | 6:30pm
Friday, January 31 and Saturday, February 1
