Of Legends and Lore

Folk Tales pays homage to Texas blues legend and irrepressible raconteur Lightnin’ Hopkins on May 12, followed on the 19th by the folk-rocking Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, whose epic Will The Circle Be Unbroken connected the roots of country to the pop mainstream. The merry month of May (fingers crossed) begins and ends with different kinds of tales, the remarkable genealogy of the cowboy lament, “Streets of Laredo” on the 5th, and the surprisingly modern roots of the folk guitar on the 26th. Drop on by!
