If this weekend is anything like last weekend, conditions will be ideal for indulging in the folksy lilt of Florida Folk Festival, May 23-25 at Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park in White Springs. It's that time of year where old timers and old souls congregate at the campgrounds to attend everything from informal jams to hosted hootenannys, with Ben Prestage closing out Friday night and JJ Grey and Mofro ending the night on Saturday.
Florida boys JJ Grey and Mofro are touring on last year's release This River, which continues his rockin' blues legacy. Prestage just released his latest live CD, Live at Will's Pub, which will likely resonate with those who have caught his one-man blues band at this particular venue, where the party is always packed and raucous. You can experience that for yourself when Prestage returns to Will's Pub on August 15 (RSVP). If that's too long to wait and White Springs is too far to drive, Prestage also performs June 21 at Backbooth (RSVP).
