Best Early Season Music Fest? Ohio River Folk Festival This Weekend

One of Indiana’s best festivals, Ohio River Valley Folk Festival, moves into its fifth year this weekend (May 21-23). Look at the highlights of this one: brilliant and retro bands like Asylum Street Spankers and the Carolina Chocolate Drops. Genuine legends Loudon Wainwright III and The Subdudes. And a full afternoon of regional artists on Sunday. You ever been to Madison? It’s freakin’ be-a-utiful. And the river folks like to have a good time. If you go, have a drink at the Broadway Tavern, the oldest bar in an old town, and then wander to Shipley’s at night. That’s where the party goes when it gets late. And then to Hinkle’s Hamburgers on Main St. for greasy gut bombs at 3am.

Oh, there’s more to hear. I’ve got your schedule below, and a couple video bits below to let you create your own preview…and may I say, The Subdudes will rock, and have for years.
