May 22$15 – $25
Central Ohio Folk Festival – Sat, May 22, 11 a.m. – 9:30 p.m. An all-day virtual event in 2021 produced by the Columbus Folk Music Society and co-sponsored by WCBE 90.5FM.
Multiple daytime performers, interactive music workshops, kid’s programming and crafts. The Saturday evening headliner is international touring Americana duo Larry Campbell and Teresa Williams.

Also expect talent-filled daytime performances representing a wide swath of roots music: folk, bluegrass, old-time, Americana, and singer-songwriter. Kids’ programming includes Columbus favorite The Shazzbots, as well as additional interactive programming with veteran kids’ musicians and craft sessions. In addition, there are seven interactive workshops covering everything from guitar and ukulele, to banjo and old-time fiddle.
