Roots/Rock: Madison's Folk Festival



One of Indiana's best music festivals, the Ohio River Valley Folk Festival, has announced their full lineup for the May 20-22 event in Madison. Among the artists on the schedule include Paul Thorn, The Greencards, David Bromberg Quartet, Carrie Newcomer and Uncle Earl, a Rounder Records five-piece all-female American string band.

Built on the banks of the Ohio River, Madison's a great historic town, and one that likes a good party. It was my first post-college town, and I lived there for almost three years, and still go back about once a year. Even on a regular weekend, there's always live music at two or three downtown clubs, like Joey G's or the Electric Lady.

A big arts community and annual events like the Madison Regatta, and the Ribberfest Blues and BBQ festival make it good place to grab a beer and catch some music. At the risk of sounding all chamber of commerce-y, drive down I-65 and hang for a day or two at this one...
