The Portland Folk Festival

The 2019 Portland's Folk Festival

This weekend Portland’s Folk Festival will be taking place at McMenamins’ Mission Theater and Pub. The festival, which was put together by duo Fox and Bones, has set up a talented lineup. It has the best folk and Americana the PNW has to offer. Fox and Bones’ recently released their sophomore EP Better Land, and if you stop by on Saturday at 9:30, you’ll get the chance to hear what critics have been describing as “exceptional, and impossible not to love.”
 
 
Fox and Bones’ weren’t working alone on this years showcase. In a statement, they explained “Our main focus is on community building and have organized this event as a profit share between the artists. We believe the stronger your local community is, the more you can accomplish!” Such teamwork happened this year as Portland’s Folk Festival was created in conjunction with Vortex Music Magazine and Rola Music. This also means that every act there is one to keep an eye on. The Parson Redheads will be headlining Friday night, and Worth be the final act of the festival on Saturday. Not to mention both days promise a surprise “Secret Guest,” amping up the excitement for each night. You can find more information about the lineup here, or check out the festival’s Facebook page here.
