FRANK FAIRFIELD TO PLAY RARE SET AT BROOKLYN FOLK FEST
Frank Fairfield – who rarely performs in public anymore – will play at the Brooklyn Folk Festival, which is set to run April 8-10 at St. Ann’s Church in Brooklyn Heights. Pitchfork called the banjo and fiddle player, singer, songwriter, and native Californian “a remarkable performer” and his original songs “tremendous achievements,” continuing, “he’s an evocative writer and his own stories to share…. Fairfield’s music seems inexorably real and entirely necessary.” The artist has opened for the Fleet Foxes and will appear in the forthcoming PBS series American Epic. Here is his NPR Tiny Desk Concert.
