30th annual Lowell Folk Festival

Published on 03-24-2016 Agenda

Folk music fills the streets of Lowell, just 35 minutes from Boston, in late July.

Lowell, about 30 miles northwest of Boston, is home to the largest free folk festival in the US. This musical genre, so evocative of America's wide-open spaces and the pioneering men and women who travelled across them, is showcased for three days. Experienced musicians and new talents come from every corner of the country, and even further afield, to play on the many outdoor stages. Artisans and street performers from around the world fill the streets, along with ethnic street-food stands. The full list of artists will be unveiled in May.
