Final Montana Folk Festival artists revealed


Seven more acts have been added to the Montana Folk Festival and the lineup is now complete. The three-day event comes to Butte July 14-16.

No admission is charged for any performance over the three-day festival but attendees are encouraged to show their appreciation and contribute $25 for an individual or $35 per family. These donations help ensure that the festival continues for years to come.

“We have our lineup set, 21 performers, and we can now give everyone the complete picture of what to expect when they come to Butte in July,” said George Everett, festival director.

The newly added performers include members of the Korean Performing Arts Institute of Chicago, Mal Barsamian, The Blue Ridge Girls, Catherine Russell, Fort Belknap Singers, Ricardo Lemvo and Makina Loca, and Edwin Colon Zayas.
