Back by popular demand, Late Night shows are back on the Mountain at this year's Four Corners Folk Festival, scheduled for Labor Day weekend, August 31 through September 2.
Greetings, Festival Nation! We hope you're having a wonderful summer. We've been busy here at Folkwest planning what we believe will be our best festival ever and we are so excited to see you all in just a little over 4 weeks.
On-site camping & festival and vehicle camp passes are selling very quickly this year. Less than 300 on-site camping passes and 75 vehicle passes remain and when they're gone, they're gone! If you are planning to camp on site, please don't wait to get your tickets and risk not being able to camp at the festival. At this point in time we anticipate having plenty of non-camping festival passes available at least through the start of the event. Order your tickets online or by calling 877-472-4672.
Bring your chairs and blankets and prepare to end your night with some amazing performances on the Pavilion Stage. There will be a beer garden by Breckenridge Brewery and delicious food and coffee from one or more festival vendors, so plan to keep your festival experience going well into the night.
Non-camping pass holders are welcome to stay for the late night shows, but be prepared for the downhill walk to your car after the show ends. The temps tend to drop into the high 40s or low 50s (or even lower) at this time of year, so be sure to bring your layers! We highly recommend bringing a flashlight or headlamp to make your journey safe.

The Well Pennies
The Well Pennies are an indie folk pop duo consisting of husband and wife team, Bryan & Sarah Vanderpool. With a sound that blends '60s folk, '70s pop and a little Americana, The Well Pennies strive for a vibe that is new and old at the same time; taking influence from Feist, Sufjan Stevens, Iron & Wine and Nickel Creek.
Mike + Ruthy
As a duo Mike + Ruthy have refined their sound down to the very core of acoustic American music, demonstrating an uncommon ability to create songs as lyrically sophisticated as Bob Dylan or Leonard Cohen and as harmonically beautiful as Gillian Welch & David Rawlings or Simon & Garfunkel. With their arsenal of fiddle, banjo, guitar, ukulele and their hallmark harmony singing, a Mike + Ruthy concert is overstuffed with soulful songs and stories and a timeless sound that is spellbinding and pure.
Rose's Pawn Shop
It may come as a surprise to hear the foot-stomping strains of Appalachian bluegrass channeled through a rock band based in Los Angeles, but heartache, loss and regret have always been the cornerstones of great music and that city has its share. In a town better known for movie stars and face lifts, anything as authentic and heartfelt as Rose's Pawn Shop is a pleasant surprise.

Sarah Siskind's music is not easily explained or contained. She's a singer and songwriter based in Virginia and grounded in Appalachian roots, but one who transcends category with a beguiling fusion of the traditional and the modern. Whether solo, fronting an electric band or in her harmony-laden trio The Novel Tellers, Sarah creates emotionally charged soundscapes that consistently delight and surprise even her long-time fans.
Where words fail, music speaks. That simple line contains only five words, but reveals volumes about this band''s reason for being. Music unites us in ways that no other medium can. Even when we don't understand one another's languages we can be moved by a rhythm, soothed by a song. Brought together by a unified sense of purpose, the spirit of five souls working as one, in harmony, creating sounds they could never produce alone.
