Folk inclusion

The good folk comes out during WTJU’s Annual Folk Marathon. This year’s slogan is “Staying in Tune,” and features a daily instrument theme, and live performances by a long list of local acts that includes Ragged Mountain String Band, the Teri Allard Trio, and Buzzard Hollow Boys. The marathon stays true to its roots by offering a wide range of special programming such as Western swing, Scandinavian folk, Cumbia Cumbia, and entire shows dedicated to the subtle art forms of accordion, bagpipe, and yodeling music.

Through 2/10 Donations strong encouraged, around the clock. WTJU 91.1 FM. 924-0885.
