While the phones are ringing, and the contracts are being drawn up...who would YOU like to see at the Folks Festival?

Although I'd rather see her at Telluride (simply because I can't make all three festivals) I think Sarah Olson would be a good fit for folks.

She's been performing for us in Town Park for many years as part of the "Fishbone" camp, and has gained some success.

I'm listening to Bawlers from the Orphans collection and I thought, Wow how cool would it be to have Tom Waits at FF.

I can dream, can't I?

I second the Todd Snider nomination- always a highlight of the summer for me. I also think FOlks Festival needs a little comic relief from time to time.

I also would love to have the Indigo Girls back...

I'll third the Todd nomination. He's is one of my favorites. Medal

I actually got to see him with a band, playing under a fake name in Nashville the day before X-mas Eve.

I was hanging out with some friends in Nashville and one of them got a call. "Todd Snider is playing RIGHT NOW at the Crow's Foot (I think that was the name of it) in East Nashville."

...we jumped up, payed our tab and booked it to said bar. It ended up being a great night. Rockin Drunk

Blanche, Hem, Robbie Fulks (w or w/o Danny Barnes), Eleni Mandell, Buddy Miller, Tift Merritt, Laura Cantrell, Donna The Buffalo, Kevin Welch & Kieran Kane, Lee Ann Womack (yeah, really), Bill Kirchen, Dave Alvin, Kelly Willis & Bruce Robison, Asylum Street Spankers, Fred Eaglesmith...off the top of my head so far.

Well heck... I'll second Telluride Tom's recommendation for Sarah Olson.  Her incredible voice and songwriting have been blowing my mind for the past 12 years in Town Park.  I have no doubt that she would similarly wow the audience at Folks!

lol - I have suggested Tom Waits on the show survey every year! And I always write - "a woman can dream, can't she?"

Someone else I'd like to see - and much more likely to actually appear - Chris Smithers.

Ooh, Robbie Fulks...  I've always wanted to see him play.  Is he really touring with Danny Barnes now? Anyone seen any of these shows?

 I would like to see Sloan Wainwright. I think it would take a miracle worker to get her there, though!
