Thread Name: University of Chicago Folk Festival
Subject: University of Chicago Folk Festival
I'm an undergraduate member of the University of Chicago Folklore Society, one of three recently put in charge of creating an archive of U of C Folk Fest/Society information and memorabilia in anticipation of our 50th annual festival, coming up in three years

Looking through the forum archives here I see that there are a number of festival veterans here. I would be very excited to hear any recollections and stories you can tell me about performances, workshops, jams, Folklore Society meetings, and anything else you can think of.

Also, if anyone out there has any old festival posters or programs that they'd be willing to part with, email me at rfhall at uchicago dot edu - we're trying to assemble a complete collection, as many of the ones that we had were apparently thrown out by mistake several years back.
