The Harvard Square Business Association, in partnership with Passim, invites you to the 3rd Annual Harvard Square Folk Festival on Sunday, September 20th

 .  The festivities take place from noon until 4:00pm, on Palmer Street located in the heart of Harvard Square – where folk music roots run far and deep.


12pm – Lindsay Straw with Armand Aromin – www.lindsaystraw.com

1pm – The Ladles – www.facebook.com/ladlesband

2pm – Billington Sea – billingtonsea.bandcamp.com

3pm – Honeysuckle –www.honeysuckleband.com/

Five years ago, the Harvard Square Business Association declared September Revival Month.  Inspired by the novel, Revival, by Scott Alarik, Revival Month is a time for renewal, reconnecting and reflection on the past.  Nothing exemplifies the concept of Revival more than the vibrant folk music scene in Harvard Square.  We are thrilled that Alarik will once again be hosting the show.  “For this novel to inspire its own tradition is the best award I could imagine – especially in Harvard Square, the world’s premiere folk hive.”

At 5:00pm, stroll over to historic Winthrop Park (corner of JFK and Mount Auburn Streets) to join in the pre-Riversing festivities.  Giant puppets, music makers, dancers, hula-hoopers and stilt-walkers join together to parade from Winthrop Park  to the Charles River to celebrate the autumnal equinox.  Stay for the 12th Annual Riversing, an unparalleled community fete that commemorates the changing of the seasons, beauty of the river and the spirit of our community through song and dance.

Join us for the day or come for the weekend!  Enjoy the Folk Festival, join the parade and sing and dance on the banks of the Charles, as the sun sets over the river and fall ushers in.
