Though rootsier acoustic music seems to
be almost trendy now (it’s a “fad” that seems to come around every 15
years or so), the local
organization Queen City Balladeers has been celebrating and nurturing
Folk and Americana music for decades in the Queen City. Next year will
mark the Balladeers’ 50th anniversary; this Friday, the 49th annual EdenSong concert series returns to Eden Park.
And so it begins. The next few weeks are loaded with "special" shows by local performers. Many have a holiday theme (that's right, I said "holiday," you intolerant Christmas warrior), but there are also plenty of gigs celebrating things other than the season (that'll end with the following three weeks of non-stop holiday madness). Let's check them out.
