The 11th annual Winter Folk Festival was a thrill for visitors who grew up in the 1960s, but about 900 young kindergarteners and elementary students managed to “get in the groove,” too, during the three-day event that included special Kids’ Koncerts. Barry McGuire and John York presented a sold-out show on Saturday, “Trippin’ the ’60s,” during which they shared great stories of times past and their adventures with some of the major musicians of the day.

Other performers included Calaveras, Lauren Sheehan, the Flying Balalaika Brothers, Catherine Reed, the New Iberian, Michael Guthrie, the Vintage Singers and the Surrey Three. Reed was awarded the People’s Choice Award. The Flying Balalaika Brothers were awarded Second Place People’s Choice.
