Sat 9/8 @ 7PM
Detroit folksinger Matt Watroba is no stranger to Cleveland. In fact, he joined a lineup of northeast Ohio musicians at the Blue Sky Folk Festival in Kirtland just a couple of weeks ago. And he hosted the folk music show o Kent’s WKSU for a few years. He’s also promoted folk music on the radio in Detroit, is a founding member of the National Folk Alliance and a charter member of the board of directors of Ann Arbor’s The Ark, a nonprofit that promotes folk music. All of that is in addition to his longtime career as a performer and music educator. He’s committed!
He’ll be headlining the next in the Folknet fall concert series at the Church of the Good Shepherd in Lyndhurst. It’s $12 for Folknet members, $15 for non-members.
Like the late Pete Seeger, one of the many artists he’s shared stages with, Watroba views himself as a community singer and song leader. So his concert will be preceded by a community sing from 3:30-5pm that’s free and open to all.
