Maryland Traditions Folklife Festival Returns This Saturday

Maryland Traditions Folklife Festival

For the last five years, the Maryland State Arts Council has produced a festival of music, arts, crafts and food that celebrates the great ethnic and cultural diversity of our state. This year’s edition of the Maryland Traditions Folklife Festival takes place tomorrow at the Creative Alliance in East Baltimore. Cliff Murphy, Director of Maryland Traditions, as well as Brooks Long, a rock and soul musician who is one of the featured performers at the festival join us in the studio.

The Maryland Traditions Folklife Festival is tomorrow from 11 to 7. In addition to Brooks Long, there will be performances by the Latin Dance Band Pablo Antonio y la Firma, the African Drummer Kwame Ansah Brew, the Korean Drummer Sebastian Wang, and many others. There’s a crab picking competition, and crafts and food from many of the cultures that make the cultural fabric of Maryland so diverse and rich. Access the full festival lineup, food offerings and free parking information at www.msac.org/folklife-festival and on the festival's Facebook event page.

Audio for this segment will be available by the end of the day.

Host, Midday (M-F 12:00-1:00)
