Folk Fest 2012

It was the perfect week for Folk Fest here in Juneau, Ak! The sunny weather was a welcome surprise for both visitors and the locals. Hundreds of people poured into Centennial Hall to hear artists from around the state play their 15 minute sets during the week. While Adam and I weren't able to make it to as many shows as we wanted (SBA testing was happening this week as well) we were able to catch a few of our friends show off their talent. 
Pat & Ray Troll playing at the JACC. It was an awesome "science" performance which included slides of marine life and fossils. Each song had a science-ey theme and if you paid attention you might actually learn something! 

My friend, Erin, entered the 1st annual Folk Fest karaoke contest at the Viking which was hosted by our local brewing company. Unfortunately, she didn't win but it was fun listening to her sing. She has an amazing voice! 

Our school's fantastic music teacher, Mike, performed with his band at the JACC. The music was fun and it was great to end the night with a little dancing! 
I love that our little town of Juneau offers so many opportunities for locals to show off their artistic talents. Folk Fest is a week long music festival that is put on by volunteers and is 100% FREE!!!!!! It's definitely a yearly tradition that we enjoy!
