Photos: Big Folkin' Fest @ Deep Ellum, Dallas, TX

Over the course of two days, plenty of folks had a folkin' good time at the venues of the Prophet Bar in Deep Ellum, Dallas.  The event was well-attended, with crowds amassing the three indoor stages both days and the outdoor space on Saturday.  It didn't matter if you were well-versed in folk, the schedule of performances surely had something for you.  Only in their third year, the Big Folkin' Fest has a bright future and a definite niche in the North Texas festival season.  I tried to make it to each set to get a taste of each band's music, but I missed out on a couple late night performances on Friday.  I also had to skip out early on Saturday to take care of a sick wife.  But I had a lot of fun and you should go ahead and make plans to attend next year.  I promise it will be a good time.
