39th Annual Alaska Folk Fest Underway



The Alaska Folk Fest is every night this week from 7:00 – 11:00 p.m., and all day Saturday and Sunday, at Centennial Hall in downtown Juneau. Performances, workshops, jams and dances will be happening both at the festival and around town. The scheduled events are available online and at Centennial Hall. Joining the lineup of festival workshops this weekend, the Jambusters crew will be leading a Beginning Ukulele workshop from 1:30-3:00 on Sunday in the Egan Room at Centennial.

One thing not on the schedule but not to be missed  is the 3rd annual Liars’ & Fiddlers’ Consort  happening at the Alaska State Museum on Saturday from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. Open to all tellers of tall tales willing to spin a story for those in attendance. It was a hoot last year and definitely on my itinerary for this year’s folkfestivities.

Most of the usual Jambuster suspects will be attending workshops, getting ready to perform (GO SELMA!) or just sleeping in this Sunday, so there may be a small turnout for the regular Rockwell jam from 11-1. Of course, if anyone shows up the jam is on. Collette even suggested it be a true Jambuster jam, complete with all ukuleles, banjos, bagpipes, and players of saws and cowbells. Our mascot will be Bert as the One-Man-Band in Mary Poppins ( from a post by sameasiteverwas )

And if no one else shows, you can always enjoy a yummy brunch from Costa’s Diner at Rockwells and play with yourself. Happy festing, everyone!
