The Festival in the Park kicks off today at Freedom Park in Charlotte, for the 44th year in a row, and there will be lots of live music there. I just wanted to highlight the performers who are NSAI members or who have some association with NSAI. All of them will be performing on the Charlotte Folk Society stage. A map of the festival showing the location of the Charlotte Folk Society stage can be found on the festival’s website at www.festivalinthepark.org.
