CT Folk Keeps Festival Alive
Louise Mosrie, guitar in hand, looked into the camera at the virtual audience assembled before her Thursday evening. “I wish we could all be together,” she said. “When we see each other again, I hope it’ll be like we haven’t missed any time at all.” She then launched into the first song of her set, “Home” — “because we’ve all spent a lot of time at home,” she said.
Thursday marked the second evening of CT Folk’s annual festival — usually held in Edgerton Park over the Saturday of Labor Day weekend, but this year, thanks to the Covid-19 pandemic, held virtually for four days. Wednesday’s opening night had featured Crys Matthews and Bumper Jacksons. Friday’s evening show will feature John John Brown, Diana Alvarez, GoldenOak, Monica Rizzio, and Lilo & Anina Gonzalez. Saturday will bring Phat A$tronaut, Buffalo Rose, Among The Acres, Dom Flemons, and Ruthie Foster, as well as a virtual ride through the Green Expo, including Cyril the Sorcerer, Musical Folk, Full of Joy Yoga, Save the Sound, Bringthehoopla, Infinite Roots Drumming, New Britain Roots, and a musical performance from Thabisa.
