This year’s Winter Folk Festival kicked off Thursday morning with a free Kids Koncert for area schoolchildren by legendary performers Barry McGuire and John York. The children learned most of the songs at school and studied a no-smoking curriculum based on a McGuire song, “Mr. Hakk N. Koff,” so they were eager to sing along. A Siuslaw Elementary School choir joined McGuire and York on stage. The festival continues today, and Sunday, with doors opening at the Florence Events Center at 10 a.m. both days. Complete schedules are available at the center and in the Jan. 19 issue of the Siuslaw News, as well as online at www.TheSiuslawNews.com.
