People who love live music in a “house concert” format in the greater Houston area are aware of the work Mary and Kenneth Harris have done for the last 20 years. When it comes to house concerts it’s difficult to beat the live events they conduct in the piney woods of east Texas.

The headliner for this fall’s event was Guthrie Kennard with Julie Bonk. 

Ken and Mary first heard Julie at Camp Stupid at the Kerrville Folk Festival in 2012.

At one point in the evening, Julie did a solo singing one of her songs, “Just Through Loving You.”

The 28th annual Tucson Folk Festival began yesterday — five stages and over 500 musicians. Not only is there plenty of music, but workshops, arts & crafts, food and children’s show. This little girl was playing in the fountain  in El Presidio Park where one of the stages is located. Her mother, carrying the youngest of three, followed her around taking joyful photos. After awhile it felt good to warm up in the sun.

More postings to come on this annual event in the Old Pueblo.

We were able to attend some of this weekend’s 26th Annual Tucson Folk Festival yesterday. This year’s event is featuring Tony Furtado and the Kevin Pakulis Band, an encore performance by 2010 headliner John Coinman and over 100 local, regional and national acts. The Festival is free to the public through the generous support of numerous sponsors and the hard work of more than 100 volunteers.
