The Philadelphia Folk Festival returns for its 58th year this summer, when the multi-day music event takes place at Old Pool Farm in Upper Salford Township, PA on August 15th-18th. On Wednesday, organizers for the event shared the lineup of artists who will perform at this year’s festival, which includes headliners David Crosby & Friends, Margo Price, The Mavericks, and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band.
The four-day folk festival continues to welcome a vibrant mix of both contemporary and traditional artists who perform under various genres ranging from world-fusion, Celtic, singer/songwriter, Americana, dance, and more. That diverse artist curation continues in 2019 with a list of scheduled performers which includes Joan Osborne, who will be singing the songs of Bob Dylan, Langhorne Slim and The Lost At Last Band, Amanda Shires, The Kruger Brothers, Chubby Carrier & The Bayou Swamp Band, Talisk, Kim So Ra, The East Pointers, and many more.
According to the initial event poster shared with the announcement, more artists have yet to be announced as summer quickly approaches.
Past reports on the festival state that the late-summer event annually welcomes over 35,000 fans from throughout Philadelphia and beyond, nearly 7,000 of whom decide to camp out at the Old Pool Farm where it takes place about 35 miles northeast of the city. The event also prides itself in claiming the honor of being the longest continuously running outdoor music festival of its kind in North America. In addition to providing a mix of artists, event organizers also curate the event with puppeteers, jugglers, aerialists, storytellers, hands-on crafts and kid-oriented musicians for the entire family.
