The 27th Annual International Folk Festival in Skagway will be at 7 p.m. on Saturday April 20th at the First Presbyterian Church on the corner of Main and 5th Avenues.
It's called an international festival because the Whitehorse Yukon Folk Society holds a festival either the day before or after ours each year and many of the performers attend both shows. Many also have come directly from the Juneau show the previous week.
The 5th annual Winter Work Art Show is going on the same weekend. The art show is a chance for locals to show off the art they have created during the winter months.
Performers will include Art Johns (Tagish), Nola Lamken (Skagway), Rainee Godwin (Juneau), Kim Rogers and Suzy Ross (Whitehorse), Michael Baish, Debbie Steidel, Rachel Ford, Betsy Albecker (SKagway), and four other possibles from Whitehorse and a few more from Skagway. There are frequently about 18 soloist or groups at the festival, with 15 minute sets each and to keep the show rolling.
