The Northern Rockies Folk Festival

Express Arts Editor

This weekend the Hop Porter Park in Hailey will come alive with music, children, food and other assorted fun as the Northern Rockies Folk Festival returns to the valley for its 24th year. With a wide selection of talented musicians set to perform, the festival is always a favorite outing for valley residents. This year offers not only folk but some Cajun, world beat and blues tunes.

The headline act slotted for Saturday evening features Rodney Crowell, Grammy Award winning artist, producer and the creator of 10 albums. Crowell and his band will take the stage at 8:30 p.m.

Heating up the stage Friday night will be the California based, world beat group Mumbo-Gumbo.

Some of the other acts lined up for the weekend of fun include the Cajun band Etouffe, Too Slim and the Taildraggers, a blues band, and the traditional folk group called The Jaybirds.

A number of valley musicians will also perform. Scheduled to play are The Doc Tater Trio, the Dynamic Duo, also known as John Zarkos and Chris McDonald, and Ken Worthington.

Booster buttons prior to the event are $13; at the show they will cost $16. Children under 12 accompanied by an adult are free as are seniors over 65. Booster buttons are available at C-M Copy & Print, Big Bad Billís and Read All About It in Hailey and Chapter One Bookstore in Ketchum.

The Idaho Mountain Express is distributed free to residents and guests throughout the Sun Valley, Idaho resort area community. Subscribers to the Idaho Mountain Express will read these stories and others in this week's issue.
