Folk fes­ti­val ‘as close to the kitchen as it gets’

“ This is as close to the kitchen as it gets,” said Justin Bow­man, a mem­ber of the or­ga­niz­ing com­mit­tee.

Hosted by the Knights of Colum­bus, the fes­ti­val is be­ing sup­ported by in-kind con­tri­bu­tions from the Town of Car­bon­ear.

“ Lo­cal and pro­vin­cial busi­nesses have also been very sup­port­ive with cor­po­rate spon­sor­ship,” the com­mit­tee spokesman noted.

Aside from pre­serv­ing and pro­mot­ing tra­di­tional folk mu­sic, or­ga­niz­ers hope the fes­ti­val will also help at­tract vis­i­tors from around the prov­ince and tourists from away to Car­bon­ear’s his­toric down­town core.

Al­lan Rick­ets will be among the lineup of per­form­ers at the Knights of Colum­bus in Car­bon­ear Satur­day, July 9 for the inau­gu­ral Celtic Roots Folk Fes­ti­val.
