If I could book just one act for the Richmond Folk Festival it would Carolyn Wonderland
Richmond's Folk Festival interprets the term "folk" very broadly, including all kinds of musical traditions. One of the most popular of these informal categories is "Texas Blues-infused Rock'n Roll." If I could book just one act for the Richmond Folk Festival it would Carolyn Wonderland, the best thing to come out of Texas in years.
Whether or not we can ever persuade Carolyn Wonderland to play the Richmond Folk Festival, you should definitely go way out of your way to see her. Her home base is Austin, Texas, so if you're ever out that way, make sure you scan the local papers for shows and try to catch her when she's not out touring; you won't regret it.
