4th Annual Fiddle n Folk Festival


Get ready for a full day of fantastic music, dancing, music, arts, and activities for kids at the 4th Annual Fiddle n Folk Fest!

This year’s Festival will be held on Saturday, September 13th in Haines Park in Barrington, RI, off Narragansett Ave.

Fiddle workshops and fiddle jams start at 9:30 am and music kicks off on the Main Stage at 11:00 am! Rain date is September 14th.

The Festival will host an amazing lineup of artists this year. We’re fortunate to have a number of favorites from past years returning to the Festival again, including:

  • Pendragon
  • Old Fiddlers Club of Rhode Island
  • Sunday Night Jammers
  • Golden Bantams (featuring EmmaLee Holmes-Hicks)
  • Bay Spring Folk
  • Magnolia (featuring Michelle Kaminsky and Alan Bradbury)
  • Mister Whodo
  • Andy Grover, and
  • Bluegrass Invitation Band

Several first-time Festival performers will also be on hand, among them:

  • John Fuzek
  • The Jobe Trio
  • Barry Brown

For added variety, this year the Festival will add a second stage for storytellers. Len Cabral and friends will spin tales for all ages throughout the day. Together with the awesome variety offered by the gourmet food trucks and the crafts and artwork by local artisans, it promises to be an amazing day.

Keep an eye out here and watch the Fiddle n Folk Fest Facebook page for Artist Spotlights and Festival updates in the coming weeks.
