    Welcome to the Delmarva Folk Festival!!!

    Well all have fun and to make sure, these rules must be followed:

  • 2Presidents Letter

    Congratulations! That was what I started hearing around 2:00 p.m. the Saturday of last years festival. I was confused until it was explained to me that the Delmarva Folk Festival had finally passed a landmark and was in the black financially solvent. That was enormous! That a small organization such as Delaware Friends of Folk could put on music festival that was genuinely solvent was HUGE! It had taken 20 years to get there.

    As lovely as the kudos were, I was well aware that they were misplaced in being given to ME. You see, those recognitions belong to those that came long before me. Some life paths away from the Delmarva Peninsula, along with others - like the members of the Delaware Friends of Folk board - have been the building blocks that began the evolution that is the Delmarva Folk Festival. They deserved the congratulations. They developed the vision and the plan. They struggled to stay true to their vision and continued to move the fledgling group forward. They immersed themselves in areas of knowledge beyond their comfort zones so that the plan was put together with thought and integrity. They brought together people of many different perspectives so that our mission of bringing folk music to Delaware was successful. They put their creativity to work. They celebrated those different perspectives. All the while moving forward.

    Others took notice. For the past 2 years, the Philadelphia Folk Festival, our much bigger brother to the North, has had an Unsung Heroes Contest. Its sounds just like Delaware Friends of Folk Folk Heroes Contest that weve been running for the past 5 years.

    Good luck to this years Folk Heroes contestants and Hats Off to the Philly Folk Festival for knowing a great idea when they hear of it.

    So, the Folk Process continues...

    Delaware Friends of Folk and this festival are run completely by volunteers.

    According to Websters Dictionary, a volunteer is someone who undertakes a service while having no legal concern or valuable consideration, who from their free will, stresses an end to be achieved.

    In our instance, the end to be achieved is bring folk music to Delaware. One of the ways we do that is through the Delmarva Folk Festival. MANY people undertake a service, from their free will, to achieve this Festival.

    The volunteers follow their passion. (A powerful or compelling emotion or feeling, a strong enthusiasm or desire for anything according to Whether the passion is to be able to hear original music; save money (volunteers come to this festival on Saturday for free); get a chance to camp in the Fall in Delaware; or just hang out with friends and have a great time they come here to the Festival to make sure the job gets done and done well. They make it possible for our guests to be comfortable here and have a good time. Thats crucial. In order to have a great audience we have to have a great volunteer base.

    So, I say to all of YOU CONGRATULATIONS!

    Best regards,

    time but remember that old clich, All work and no play makes volunteers cranky or something like that. One good thing is that every year it seems a little easier which is nice because we are not getting any younger!

    I would like to thank all the board members for their hard work handling the technical problems that may come up and also for getting such a great line up of bands this year.

    Hopefully everyone will have a safe and enjoyable time and so far it looks like the weather will be great. Oops, maybe I shouldnt have said that! But just have faith!

    By the way, we have a small collection of items found from previous festivals - you may check out our Lost & Found Tent. Tent pegs, some rope, a coffee mug or two, a beer huggie and old tee shirt.

    I am very aware of the sentimental value folks my have for their personal things. I recall when I was young, I would sit for hours watching my Grandfather whittle a piece of wood. I loved the way he could make those white chips fly like snowflakes with his beautiful Swiss Army knife, which I would have given anything to own. My Grandfather knew how much I loved that knife. So, when he was in the hospital, knowing he was not going to make it through the night, and knowing he had whittled his last piece of wood - he called me into his room, just before he passed on, he sold me the knife. Thanks, Grandad!

    The Field Family wishes you a peaceful, happy time at this years festival. We look forward to seeing everyone and would like to thank you for all your support!

    The turkeys are back. I am not talking about the ones who visit my farm every fall to help prepare for the Delmarva Folk Festival, I am talking about the ones that fly.

    You may wonder why this is significant, so I will explain. When these birds arrive every year, I know the Festival is not far away. They always show up a month before, prowling through the garden and searching the woods, looking for a place to winter.

    Along with the birds come the smiling faces of all our friends who help make this event happen. I am always amazed how things come together during the work parties. Everyone has a different talent and they are more than happy to share their knowledge and material when a problem pops up. For example, once I needed some plumbers tape and someone just happened to have some in their pocket. I needed a piece of three-quarter inch plywood to fix the floor in our camper and BAM, someone shows up with plywood and two pizzas! Thank you, Ethel, we were getting real hungry!

    Needless to say, we all have a good time which can make our jobs a lot easier. As I have mentioned before, these people have become like family and I love them all. Dont get me wrong, it is not all play
