Event Photography: Folkies and Rodders

This past weekend was a busy one in Tucson. The Downtown scene was enlivened by the 24th Annual Tucson Folk Festival, which featured two days of music, workshops, and food and craft vendors.

The Folk Festival attracts talent from near and far, and here’s the really cool part: There’s no charge to attend any of the performances. It’s a Folk Festival tradition.

My friend Diamond Jim Hewitt came down from Oracle, Arizona, with a couple of his musical neighbors, Scott McMullen and Scott’s wife, Cyn-d Turner. They performed at the Acoustic Showcase.
