GREENSBORO — The N.C. Folk Festival and the Piedmont Blues Preservation Society will present the city’s premier roots music festivals as a joint venture in September.
The 34th Carolina Blues Festival will be presented as part of the annual N.C. Folk Festival downtown the weekend of Sept. 11 to 13, 2020.
All performances will be free to the public.
The collaboration stems from the coronavirus pandemic, which has canceled arts and cultural events worldwide.
“Our decision to collaborate on a unified festival will allow our organizations to share resources, fulfill our like-minded cultural missions, and together lift up our community through the power of music,” said the joint announcement from Piedmont Blues Preservation Society President Atiba Berkley, and North Carolina Folk Festival President and Chief Executive Officer
