Here in the Southwest, Americana encompasses New Mexican, Middle Eastern and other traditions. Celebrating its 16th iteration, the Albuquerque Folk Festival exists to promote the exchange of these ideas, skills and arts. The event kicks off on Saturday, June 7, and wraps up at 2pm on Sunday, June 8. Beginner’s workshops range from mountain dulcimer to ukulele, and intermediate harmony and singing lessons, jam sessions and fiddle courses round out the learnin’. A slew of talented performers—among them Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, Birds of Chicago and local faves like Wildewood, Cactus Tractor and The Porter Draw—entertain and educate fans of folk music this weekend at Anderson Abruzzo International Balloon Museum (9201 Balloon Museum NE).
