Lowell Folk Festival boasts diverse, delightful lineup
- Jed Gottlieb, Boston Herald
Folk is Joan Baez in Harvard Square in 1960. And Robert Johnson at the crossroads in 1932. And Portuguese fado singer Sara Correia at the Lowell Folk Festival next week.
Folk is the biggest, strangest and most diverse genre in the world. Probably because it isn’t a single genre but a million crisscrossing styles, inventions and reinventions. The Lowell Folk Festival brings a couple dozen of these styles to Mill City July 28-30 (for free!).
