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.
