A Folk Festival in Ferndale

This Saturday, Blaring Division is bringing us yet another great show. This one is going to be a little different, though. It's a folk festival, featuring some of your local favorites. The lineup includes Lac La Belle, Josh Malerman, Ryan Dillaha, Emily Rose and Jibs Brown.
Lac La Belle is an acoustic americana/folk duo from Detroit made up of Jennie Knaggs and Nick Schillace. They started out learning a range of old-time country and folk and soon began making their own songs. They officially became a duo in 2011 and have played all over Michigan, the midwest and even went on a European tour last year. 

We've talked about Josh Malerman a couple times before with The High Strung and again with his solo project. And everything he does, from his music to his published book, proves that he's a very talented man. You won't want to miss this chance to catch his solo acoustic tunes!

Ryan Dillaha is another great local americana/country singer. He grew up surrounded by motown and classic country that has influenced his music. Check out his fun music video here that was filmed at Groovebox Studios.

Emily Rose is a folk songwriter and has been recognized by the Detroit Music Awards in 2009 and 2010 for her songwriting with the "Outstanding Acoustic Songwriter" award.

And last but certainly not least, Jibs Brown is an acoustic blues/rock/folk and soul singer from Ypsilanti who is described as making simple and honest music that is influenced from a wide range of musical genres including R&B and hip hop.

The show will be on Saturday, March 30 at One Eyed Betty's in Ferndale. Thanks to Blaring Division, it's a free show and starts at 9 p.m.
