This fall, Hawaii’s Grove Farm Museum will host the inaugural Kauai Folk Fest, a new, two-day music gathering aimed at showcasing the influence of the island state on American roots music.

Also set to play are Tim O’Brien and Jan Fabricus, Jonny Fritz, Blaine Sprouse, Uncle Shuffelo and his Haint Hollow Hootenanny, Mike Bub and more, plus Hawaiian artists like Puka Asing, Sashamon and Uncle Isaac Kamaile Jr., Na’ Opihi and others.
