Folk Festival

Cliched words are slinking their way onto my keyboard... like, say, "beacon..." a beacon for overarching community - not just for artists, not just for folk singers, not just for hippies, hipsters or long-haired idealists - a place, a beacon, damn it, to network, to be neighborly, to nurture involvement and to come to know more about yourself and your city...

TrumbullPlex is a housing community and performance space, and Saturday's day/night-long event is a fundraiser for some long-needed repair work for the cozy red-brick abode. As songwriter/poet/performer and TrumbulPlex resident Audra Kubat told Detroit Free Press music writer Rachel May (in Thursday's edition): "We want to encourage and show them that we can live cheaply together and live richly by sharing. It's about coming together with groups of people and finding a new way to have family."

The line-up (as any Facebooker can see) includes Tim Kish, Josh Allen, Cedar Lashes, Jere Stormer, Loretta Lucas, Kelly Jean Caldwell, Jeff Jablonski, Tone & Niche, Markita Moore, Small Houses, Pancho Villa's Skull, Eleanora, Gardens, Eric Dilworth, Pree, Petal Shop and Goat Toker...
