Blakeslee's Axe

The weather was perfect and the music was outstanding on Sunday August 26th as the 5th annual Providence Folk Festival arrived in town. Hundreds attended the festival which was held at the Roger Williams National Memorial.

Performers came from far and wide and included several local acts, many who stretch the boundaries of traditional folk. Main Stage performers included John Hall, Cardboard Ox, Dan Lilly and the Keepers, Jaime Michaels, Michelle Cruz, You and Everything, Alley Cats and The Dust Ruffles. The SongCrafter Stage featured singer-songwriters Allysen Callery, Bob Kendall, Daphne Martin, Kate Mick, Jenn Lombari, Jodie Trelor Sampson, Morgan Johnston, Lainey Dionne, Glen Kendzia, and the incomparable Dan Blakeslee.
