Celebrating 10, this festival brings together national and local folk artists for over 80 high-quality folk performances and participatory activities throughout downtown Urbana.
The C-U Folk and Roots Festival is thrilled to announce that Robbie Fulks, headliner at our very first festival in 2009, will return to headline the 10th anniversary festival. Robbie is a singer, recording artist, instrumentalist, composer, and songwriter. His most recent release, 2017’s Upland Stories, earned year’s-best recognition from NPR and Rolling Stone among many others, as well as two Grammy nominations for folk album and American roots song.
Additional headliners include:
The festival includes performances, dances, instructional sessions, jams, song-circles, family activities, storytelling, instrument-making and much, much more! The festival has a particular interest in evolving and unique forms of folk music and art, especially forms that break down barriers between audience and performers, while also providing the occasion to preserve local traditions and histories.
