Press Release from City of Casselberry along with other information

Everyone is welcome to attend the annual Casselberry Folk Festival on Saturday, April 13, 2019, from 6-9pm, at Lake Concord Park. This free event, sponsored by the City of Casselberry and Wolf 103.1, will entice all Folk lovers to gather and enjoy a spectacular evening at the lakefront park. Rain or shine this event goes on.

This event is only a short drive from Orlando. There are many routes to take to arrive at this event. Please check your GPS for the best travel route. Parking near Lake Concord Park is very limited. Here are some areas where one can park their vehicle and walk over to the park. There is plenty of parking at the Casselberry Target and Home Depot. It is recommended to get to this event early for the best parking spaces. There are a limited number of handicap spaces near the Casselberry Police Station and Casselberry City Hall public parking lot. Don’t forget to bring your folding chair and or blanket to sit out on the lawn in front of the stage. Anywhere you sit will be the best seat in the house. Relax and enjoy some great Jazz music from these well-known musicians. It is recommended to leave your coolers at home.

The main featured act is Yarn. Yarn, which weaves roots music idioms into a fresh sound that turns on hipsters and fans of country music alike, headlines the second annual Folk Festival. The North Carolina-based band will perform at this event. Yarn was formed in Brooklyn, N.Y., which might seem an odd place of origin for a folk country band, but to frontman and songwriter Blake Christiana, it is the place that offered an opportunity to meet other skilled musicians. With technically impressive song-crafting and universal tales from the road of life, Yarn brings a new blend of folk, country, and rock. Yarn has received quite a bit of buzz in the Americana world as a result of the band’s first two recordings as well as strong performances at clubs and festivals. Their self-titled debut record reached No. 14 on the AMA and R&R Radio Charts, and ranked No. 79 on the AMA’s Top 100 Albums of 2007. Yarn’s 2008 follow-up, Empty Pockets, spent months in the AMA charts. The album peaked at No. 5 and was honored with eight first round 2009 Grammy nominations in several categories. The band’s latest album, This Is the Year, is a seamless blend of vibrant, inspired, back porch melodies with descriptive lyrics that detail the challenges faced when one’s life is jolted off its bearings.

In an era of click-bait and sound bites, Yarn provides a real experience for music lovers. They’re not just a live band, they’re a band for people who want to live. The opening act for the night is local favorites, The Jam Campaign. GT Springer and his band share a mix of original toe-tappers and heart string tuggers from a vast musical repertoire as well as a blend of cover tunes that feature the history behind them. Along with the music, Casselberry City Hall hosts the Experience Contemporary art exhibit, which features the work of Central Florida’s best contemporary and folk artists.  Artisans, product vendors, and food merchants will also fill Lake Concord Park for a night of good time folk music.
