2015 Richmond Folk Festival Feature: Virginia Folklife Area Part 1

For ten years the Virginia Folklife area has celebrated Virginia tradition bearers - craftsmen that specialize in building instruments and furniture and musicians that keep alive gospel, bluegrass and old-time music.

This year, instead of focusing on the preservation of folk traditions, the Virginia Folklife area will celebrate the youth that have embraced those tradition and made them their own. 88.9 WCVE producer Peter Solomon has more.

Dropping the Musical Anchor

It won't be complicated for this week's World Music Show (10/10). We'll drop our musical anchor in places like the Dominican Republic, Dakar, France, India and even in the U.S. Plus, within those locales, we'll even dip back in time to hear some psychedelic Funk as well as some early Bollywood dance tunes.
