Today marks the start of the Smithsonian Folk Life Festival. They’ve been setting up the last couple of weeks and the weather looks good (if a little warm) for the first day. This year the festival features the country of Wales, Las Americas (music in Latino culture), and Giving Voice (the power of words in African American culture). We’re particularly excited about the bands playing this year with the Las Americas section, but it’s always fun to just wander around and stumble upon the various exhibits.
Are any of you going to try to make the opening ceremonies today at 11 am?
