In 2020 we celebrate the 42nd Annual Folk Music Festival at Sharlot Hall Museum. This is Arizona’s longest-running folk music festival and features musicians performing on four stages. This premier event includes educational and informative workshops on musical history, musical styles and iconic musicians.
More than 100 performers will be participating in the Festival, performing over two days at four different venues on the campus, bringing a vibrancy and vitality to this 42nd annual event. Plan to visit both days, Saturday and Sunday, October 3-4, 2020, to revisit with old friends and comfortable sounds, or discover new talent and exciting “licks.”
There are plenty of opportunities to jam on our beautiful grounds – the porch on the historic Territorial Governor’s Mansion has proven to be a popular venue year after year. If you are a musician, be sure to bring your instrument – all levels are welcome. Throughout the two-day event, workshops on a wide range of musical subjects will be conducted by the performers and group members.
