More performers added to Prescott Park, Chowder this Saturday

Carolina Chocolate Drops, David Wax Museum and more! And, getcha chowdah this Saturday!


Great news...summer just keeps on getting better!

The Folk Festival this year (Friday, August 3) will feature the Grammy Award winning Carolina Chocolate Drops, the rousing David Wax Museum, Crooked Still's Aoife O'Donovan, and The Coloradas.

It's a do-not-miss kind of night.


Considered a throwback of epic proportions, the Carolina Chocolate Drops have proved that old-time fiddle and banjo-based music can be a living, breathing, and ever-evolving sound.

With a recent Grammy Award and song featured on The Hunger Games soundtrack, this group has been lighting up the music scene through sold-out shows across the globe.

And, Aoife O'Donovan? Having delighted our audiences before with her band, Crooked Still, she needs little to no introduction. Hailed by USA Today as "the newest darling of the Americana set", it is a treat to be welcoming Aoife back.


After their rousing performance last year, it is also a thrill to welcome back the David Wax Museum, complete with their unique donkey jawbone rattling and fusion of Mexican folk and American roots music. They are a musical force who, along with acclaimed Roy Davis' newest effort, The Coloradas, will add to another memorable night in the park.

This bus service is unlike any other, offering unbeatable travel service with free parking, wi-fi service and more. (Their new non-stop service to NYC is fantastic).

They will be cruising up here all summer long, so hop aboard, leave the driving to them, and come enjoy a night in the park!
