ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
Common Ground and Irvington Theater are proud to announce the first annual Irvington Folk Festival, to be held on January 31-February 1, 2020, featuring Dar Williams, The Dustbowl Revival, Joe Crookston, Antje Duvekot, Nora Brown, Divining Rod, and more!
Join us at the crossroads of creativity and community for two evenings and one afternoon of live music, special VIP workshops and Q&A sessions at Irvington Theater and elsewhere in Irvington, NY.
The Irvington folk Festival offers performances by internationally-touring and emerging “on-the-rise” artists alike. The festivities begin with a special Q&A and reception with — and then a performance by — Friday night’s headliner, Dar Williams, whom Henrik Hertzberg of the New Yorker described as “one of America’s very best singer-songwriters.”
On Saturday night, The Dustbowl Revival, the eclectic, Los Angeles based eight-piece ensemble, takes to the stage. Over the past few years, the band has been making a name for itself with a vibrant mix of vintage Americana sounds. Critics have proclaimed that this “would have sounded utterly at home within the hallowed confines of Preservation Hall in New Orleans’ French Quarter” (Los Angeles Times).
One of the highlights on Saturday will be a very special afternoon workshop led by the award-winning singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, painter, and storyteller Joe Crookston. Joe will also perform at the theater on Saturday night,
