Gold in California

One of my favorite local (for me) festivals is the Kate Wolf Memorial Music Festival, held in memory of the beloved California singer-songwriter who passed away in 1986. With FP's busy 2006 season, we probably won't be covering it this year, but looking at the newly published lineup we now wish we were.

Among the scheduled performers: Steve Earle, Bruce Cockburn, Tim O'Brien, Buddy Miller, Dirk Powell, Laurie Lewis, Adrienne Young, The Kennedys, The Roches, Railroad Earth, and The Wailin' Jennys. That's in addition to festival regulars Greg Brown, Arlo Guthrie, Utah Phillips, Rosalie Sorrels, and Nina Gerber. Oh my.

This year's event, to be held June 23-25 in Laytonville, Calif., is the 11th season for this great festival.
