Louisiana Dance Hall

Louisiana Dance Hall: Folk Fest recap, new music and more!

Bill Thomson

Well, this year’s Richmond Folk Festival is over, and — despite the Matthew-related rain on Saturday — the event brought a wonderful variety of music from all over the world right here to RVA! We’re starting off this week’s show with music from a selection of folk festival favorites who had the crowds dancing in the rain … suitable for this “dance hall show” … and will continue with some new music as well as tracks from some of your favorite artists. As always, thanks for listening and for your support! Our Fall Fund Drive starts soon, so let’s keep this great station going!
