2019 dates: TBA. From Facebook: The KCFF builds a stronger folk music culture in Kansas City, Missouri and the surrounding region through presenting outstanding performances and educational programming to the general public. Folk is a diverse musical genre fueled by oral histories and roots traditions from around the world. Folk music often defies definition as it encompasses Aboriginal, Americana, Appalachian, Bluegrass, Blues, Cajun, Celtic, Global Roots, Old Time, Singer-Songwriter, and Traditional. Folk music provides a way to share the story of a specific place and time that is simultaneously inclusive of all cultures and histories. We believe music is a powerful tool of unification and personal and historical exploration.
