Enjoy Superstar John Anderson Performance at the 59th Annual Florida Folk Festival

~Florida music, dance, food, crafts and history to be celebrated~

WHITE SPRINGS – The Florida Department of Environmental Protection’s Florida Park Service will kick off the 59th Annual Florida Folk Festival tomorrow, Saturday, May 28 at Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park. Award and Recognition Ceremonies will begin at 5:30 p.m.

Headlining Saturday’s celebration will be superstar John Anderson. John Anderson is a seasoned and improved model of the same tried-and-true, dyed-in-the-wool country vocalist who critics lauded more than a decade ago for having brought, "renewed beauty and elegance to the twin-fiddle, steel guitar tradition of the old-time honky-tonk balladeer." John Anderson’s platinum-plus album, Seminole Wind, is the story of the country music "come-back" of the decade. Additional featured performers will include The Morse Family, Ariana Hall, Roadside Revue, The Aaron O’Rourke Trio and Ben Prestage.

The schedule for Florida Folk Festival activities tomorrow will be as follows:

5:30 p.m. Awards and Recognition Ceremonies
6:00 p.m. The Morse Family
6:45 p.m. Ariana Hall
7:30 p.m. Roadside Revue
8:15 p.m. The Aaron O’Rourke Trio
9:00 p.m. Ben Prestage
9:45 p.m. John Anderson

One day passes are available for adults for $25 each day and three-day weekend admission passes are $50 for adults. One-time admission of $5 for children between the ages of six and 16 is valid all weekend and children under six years of age are free.
