Folk music fans unite

  • Friday, March 7, 2014

Ford Productions presents the inaugural “What the Folk Music Festival” on April 11 from 5-10 p.m. and April 12 from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. at Sewee Outpost located at 4853 U.S. Hwy. 17 in Awendaw, S.C. The two-day music festival features Todd Snider headlining both nights as well as The Bottle Rockets, Charlie Mars, Pierce Edens and the Dirty Work, Megan Jean and the KFB, Swamp Candy, Vinegar Creek Constituency, Sierra Elizabeth Ferrell, Doug Jones, Ryan Bonner and a few more surprise guests. Food trucks “The Big Southern” and “Lowcountry Creole” will be there along with two beer trucks with the local brews including Palmetto Brewery. Available through Stranger Tickets, admission is $25 on Friday, $35 on Saturday or $50 for limited two-day pass. Additionally, camping is available for $20.

“What the Folk Festival was formed through a friendship with Todd Snider and his love of playing in this area,” said festival organizer Brett Ford. “The lineup includes musicians that come close to emulating what Todd does as a singer/songwriter. As we plan to make this an annual event, my goal is to continue to have Americana-type groups play and get recognized for what they do since the majority of them don't receive the radio play or media recognition that they deserve.”

A portion of proceeds will benefit Carolina Studios, a nonprofit that provides at-risk students a safe environment to foster creative, educational and career-focusesd initiatives through music technology and media arts.
