"Folklife has begun and is in full swing. If you are planning to attend the Maritime Showcase at the Traditional Stage on Saturday (3 to 6 pm), I recommend that you bring a festival chair for yourself. There are not a lot of seats for folks at that stage. Looks like the weather is going to hold for Saturday. Note to that the times in the on-line schedule are correct, and those in the printed schedule are not correct.
Also a quick correction and note for Tom Rawson's performances. On Saturday, 7:10 p.m. Tom is at the Folklife Cafe with his regular repertoire of traditional and contemporary folk songs. Tom will be leading a Pete Seeger kids songs sing along, but that will be at 2:00 p.m. Saturday at the Cornish Courtyard.
