What Performers Had to Say
Sesitshaya Marimba loved participating – as we always do. Thank you for including us. We had a wonderful, responsive audience that gave us more energy with each response. That is always a treat.
Bodhi Bill Miller
This was my first year performing, and I was impressed by the professionalism of the festival overall and especially the PA system and mix engineer in the Conference Room. I didn’t expect that level of quality. Well done! I hope to be invited back next year. I had a blast--a great crowd who came to LISTEN! Wow! And I met some wonderful new people. Thanks again for all your hard work to give Spokane something this meaningful in this impersonal, digital age.
Cherry Sisters Revival
Thank you for all the work on the festival. We had a really great time and so enjoyed all the talent that gathered in one place! We were so impressed with the festival. It was our first time there, and we liked seeing the other performers, enjoyed strolling through the many vendors, and wished we could have been there both days. We are looking forward to next year.
Caitlin Trusler, Haran School of Irish Dance
Nice job in another wonderful year! My dancers and I were, as always, thrilled to be a part of the weekend. Thanks for all you do. Best Regards.
This year's festival provided a bright spot in what have been very dark days for many in our community. I applaud you, the festival committee, the sound engineers, and all of the volunteers for a job well done! I look forward to next year’s event.
What Attendees Said on Their Surveys
We are so lucky to have this outstanding world-class music festival here in the Inland NW each year. I count this festival among the highlights of my year. The Spokane Folk Festival has introduced me to new music, new performers, and new friends. I adore the strong feeling of community at this festival. We are all friends and there is nothing finer than music to bring us all together. Thank you very much to every festival organizer and volunteer for making this gem of a weekend possible.
Well-organized – friendly volunteers.
Loved it. Will definitely come next year.
It’s Americana and inclusive.
Friendly, local, unspoiled – I love this.
I like the sense of community and great music. We look forward to this event every year.
We were impressed with the great variety of music and dance. This was our first time after moving to Spokane from Texas last year. Awesome! Thank you.
