ERROR: Oberlin Folk Music Festival

Thanks to the commenter pointing out that this is last year's schedule. Forget that the dates were wrong, that they had 2008 on the page, and that Girlyman didn't actually appear on the schedule, but the biggest oversight being Odetta's passing. Hopefully Oberlin will get a new schedule up soon.

I found out about this festival because Girlyman posted they were going to be in the area. I had no idea Oberlin had a Folk Festival, their 10th Annual.

I checked the schedule and it looks like a great couple days of music - all free! Just glancing at the list, seeing Odetta and Anais Mitchell on Saturday alone in Finney Chapel is worth the drive!

Here's the Schedule (which I'm quoting, and think they messed up their dates):

  1. This is last year's schedule. (Clue: Odetta died in December.)
