This is the fifth year of the Richmond Folk Festival, and every year I've been thrilled to hear some wonderful music that was new to me.
Last night it was Debashish Bhattacharya, an amazing slide guitarist and his brother Subhasis on tabla. The music was haunting, hypnotic, and powerful--and, to me, at least, incredibly sexy.
The festival continues today and tomorrow at Brown's Island and the grounds of the American Civil War Center. See Richmondfolkfestival.com
The festival is free, but donations are welcome.
