Ann Arbor Folk Festival

. May 18, 2012.

Find Your Folk!  seems like a pretty good slogan for the 35th annual Ann Arbor Folk Festival, since there’s a pretty good chance that every year you’ll walk out blown away by an artist — whether that be one that you’ve never heard of or someone previously overlooked. The festival is known for its outstanding lineups, and this year is no different. Here’s the breakdown: Friday, January 27 brings the progressive acts, while Saturday, January 28 drives the festival home with traditional folk. Friday features Ryan Adams, Dawes, Carbon Leaf, Elephant Revival, Sunny War, and David Wax Museum. Saturday brings favorites Emmylou Harris, Glen Campbell, Nanci Griffith, Joe Henry, Sarah Jarosz, Caravan of Thieves and Seth Glier. And comedic folkie Haywood Banks will keep the entertainment flowing as M.C. Hill Auditorium, 825 N. University Ave. Tickets are $35 and $47.50 for a single night,  $60 and $85 for both nights. 734-761-1800. www.theark.org
