Program Host(s): Lilli Kuzma
Join host Lilli Kuzma for a great mix of folk artists and styles, from traditional and contemporary folk, to doses of related and influenced styles, like folk-rock, bluegrass, country, blues, Celtic, world, Americana, and more. Folk Festival presents entertaining themed shows plus topical and historical segments, and regularly hosts outstanding live studio guests, both Chicago-based and national touring acts. There are frequent ticket and CD giveaways, and on each show listeners are informed about area/regional concerts, workshops, and events, with the Chicagoland Folk Calendar.
