Manchester Riverfolk Festival

 

continued

Riverfolk is the brainchild and passion of Mark and Carol Palms, who, along with multi-instrumental wizard David Mosher, form the roots trio the Raisin Pickers. Over the years the Raisin Pickers had performed at many other festivals, and Mark remembers thinking, "I could see this taking place in my community." And that's the key word at Riverfolk. Ultimately this is not merely a folk festival but an event that brings together over 300 volunteers, musicians, artists, and teachers to offer a joyous celebration to the entire community and the surrounding area.
