The annual Ann Arbor Folk Festival, a fundraiser for The Ark, returns to Hill Auditorium for two dynamic and different nights of folk and roots music on Friday, January 27, and Saturday, January 28, 2012 beginning at 6:30 p.m. each night.

We're pleased to be celebrating the Festival's 35th Anniversary with two of the Festival's most emblematic and legendary performers, Emmylou Harris and Nanci Griffith. Rounding out Saturday's headlining bill is the renowned Glen Campbell.
