“What the Folk Festival was formed through a friendship with Todd Snider and his love of playing in this area. The lineup includes musicians that come close to emulating what Todd does as a singer/songwriter,” said festival organizer Brett Ford.  “As we plan to make this an annual event, my goal is to continue to have Americana type groups play and get recognized for what they do, since the majority of them don’t receive the radio play or media recognition that they deserve.”

A portion of proceeds will benefit Carolina Studios, a non-profit that provides at risk students a safe environment to foster creative, educational and career-focused initiatives through music technology and media arts.

An all encompassing arts festival established to provide an outlet for local artists to present their work, JAIL BREAK 2 will be held at one of the most unique venues in downtown Charleston where the jail will be converted into a gallery, displaying works by local visual artists and students from the ACBA as well as music and dance instillations from Dancefx Charleston and Annex Dance Company. Additionally, interactive festivities such as live painting, arts and crafts, demonstrations of various building arts by ACBA students and artisan booths will be outside in the main yard of the former jail.

“I started Entropy Arts to focus on presenting innovative performing arts events that showcase collaboration between artists of different mediums including music, dance, visual art, writing, filmmaking and more,” stated festival organizer Andrew Walker. “It was a natural step to host an arts festival where diverse artists and audiences could come together to celebrate the arts.

While Charleston has a great local music scene, for years some have complained about larger bands skipping over Charleston citing the city not as convenient to pass through for tours. Well, this week, Grammy Award-winning Zac Brown Band changes that by bringing Southern Ground Music and Food Festival to Charleston on October 21-23 at Blackbaud Stadium on Daniel Island. Zac Brown Band will play each night of three-day festival as well as an array of music talent from My Morning Jacket and Warren Haynes Band to Train, Fitz and The Tantrums and Del McCoury to name only a few.

Billed as much a food festival as music, some of the experiences for foodies include Front Porch Stage Boxes that feature seating on-stage close to the performers with a four-course gourmet meal prepared by Southern Ground Executive Chef Rusty Hamlin and James Beard Award-winners Sean Brock (Executive Chef – Husk, McCrady’s, Charleston, SC), Mike Lata (Chef/Partner – FIG, Charleston, SC), and RJ Cooper (Owner/Executive Chef – Rogue 24, Washington, DC) as well as complimentary drinks including premium beer, wine, and non-alcoholic drinks. Having had the pleasure of attending a Zac Brown Eat & Greet where Chef Rusty prepared a feast pre-show in “Cookie”, the band’s mobile kitchen trailer, I know the food element of the weekend will be fantastic as well.
