Grammy-winning Loudon Wainwright III and Patty Larkin will be the featured acts at the 2010 Moab Folk Festival in Moab, Utah.
Wainwright, who has been performing for 40 years as both a musician and actor, won a Grammy earlier this year in Traditional Folk music for his album High, Wide & Handsome. Larkin, who is making her second appearance at the Moab festival, celebrated her 25th year as a performer by releasing her new album 25, on which she performs with a roster of guest artists that reads like a music Hall of Fame.
Also on this year’s program are Sloan Wainwright, Loudon’s sister; Darol Anger, Sharon Gilchrist & Scott Law; Po’ Girl; Caroline Herring; Peter Mulvey; Elephant Revival; Tom Prasada-Rao; Tara Shupe & Broken Pony (with guest Nick Boyer of the Puddle Mountain Ramblers); and The Mile Markers. Performances will be at three venues: outdoors at Moab Ball Field, and indoors at Star Hall and Grand County High School.
Now in its eighth year, the Moab Folk Festival has grown into one of the nation’s top music showcases and has expanded the definition of “folk” to include music that reaches beyond traditional boundaries – including bluegrass, indie folk-rock, folk-fringe punk, celtic-folk and modern acoustic artists.
