The Floating Folk Festival 15th Anniversary First Friday June 1st at Artemis

The Floating Folk Festival presented their 15th Anniversary concert at Artemis Gallery Friday, June 1st at 6pm.There was three stages of music during the evening featuring Pam McCarthy, Norman Nortledorf, Meade Skelton, Harry Gore, Brooke Saunders, Chuck Kerwath, Chris Branch, Wendy Paace and much more!   The Floating Folk Festival was created by Brook Saunders in 1997 as a musical co-op that “floated around” many different venues in Richmond. The first show was held at the Main Street Grill on July 17th, and there have been hundreds more over the years.   As the Floating Folk Festival developed, it has added many more artists, even a bit of a rock and roll scene! The Festival has received a lot of attention over the years, by 1998 the organization was on the cover of the Weekender section in the Times Dispatch, had the first of three compilation CD released by Plan 9 Records, and was playing venues small and large throughout the area. But the core group always remained and stayed active in various ways, and has chosen Artemis Gallery to celebrate all of the hard work over the years to help make Richmond a great music town.
