Heads up peeps for a great event this coming Saturday that’s worth every penny that you will spend to attend this event! It’s a star-studded event of music that will blow your mind while it opens up your heart and soul to music of some incredible performers.
What: 2008 Claremont Folk Music Festival
WHO: This incredible line-up will is worth so much more than the price of a ticket.
The headliners:
Ben Harper,
Taj Mahal and
Jackson Browne.
Other performers include
Da Lion,
The BladeRunners,
Yuval Ron,
Joel Rafael and
Squeakin’ Wheels.

Workshops instructed by Leon Mobley and his band Da Lion along with Joel Harper.
Workshops will include lessons on drum making, folksongs, improvising on a harp, spoon making, flatpicking guitar and lots of other cool events.
Ben Harper will be raffling off a signed Martin Guitar and a Michael Thiele “Blessed to be a Witness” Tongue drum.
WHY: The festival will benefit The Dorothy and Charles Chase Folk Music and Culture Education Fund (FMCEF), which is a nonprofit education and arts organization dedicated to the advancement, promotion and preservation of traditional, contemporary, and international folk music, instruments and folk culture.
Started by Ben Harper’s grandparents, FMCEF presents concerts, dances, workshops, demonstrations, and educational programs for persons of all ages in Los Angeles, Orange and San Bernardino counties.
In other words, this festival is a fund-raiser for arts programs in LA, Orange and San Bernadino counties. Given what has happened to the education budget in S. Calif (thank you Governator), there will be a huge drought in that area for years to come if you ( yes — that means YOU) don’t come help out.
WHEN: Saturday, May 3, 2008
WHERE: Sycamore Elementary School, 225 W. 8th Street, Claremont, CA

Go for the music, go for the workshops, go for the fundraising, go for the fun, — just GO!
