Let the folk be with you.

It's a boot stompin', finger pickin' good time at Bluegrass Night featuring the Compost Mountain Boys, Jenny Scheinman, and Clean Livin'!
Kick off this year's Folklife Festival by laughing at yourself and partner as you swing round and round to the uptempo string masters, Striped Pig String Band. Don't worry, the fabulous Lyndsey Battle will carefully lead you through each step.
Don't miss this boot-stomping good time!
