A celebration of traditional music and dance from diverse cultures!

EUCLID, OHIO, JANUARY 26, 2018 - The Shore Cultural Centre and Northeast Ohio Heritage Music Association (NEOHMA) have booked exciting artists and planned a rich offering of hands-on workshops and activities for the 3rd Annual Lake Erie Folk Fest (LEFF) scheduled for Saturday, February 24 at the Shore Cultural Centre in downtown Euclid, Ohio beginning at 1:00pm. The roots based music festival has received enthusiastic reviews since its launch in 2016.

LEFF features from 1:00-6:00pm FREE workshops, demonstrations, jam sessions, mini-concerts and activities for young people - there will be something for all ages! Some of the artists featured will be the Corn Potato String Band providing live music for square dancing, a drum workshop with Tam Tam Magic, Cajun dancing with The Cajun Pals, and mini concerts by Tom Evanchuck, Sands & Hearn and Ballinloch. The free, daytime activities will take place throughout the Shore building, once home to Shore High School built in 1913. The venue is now on the Registry of National Historic Places.

An evening concert at 7:30pm in the Shore Auditorium will feature the folk fusion trio Ten Strings And A Goat Skin from Prince Edward Island, Canada. The group is also scheduled to present an educational program for area middle and high school students on Friday, February 23 at 10:00am at Shore Auditorium. (Call 216-289-8578 for information.)

Also performing at the evening concert will be former The Voice contestant and Wakeman, Ohio native, Emily Keener. Keener is returning after her exciting appearance at last year's LEFF.

Filling out the bill is newgrass duo Aaron Jonah Lewis & Lindsay McCaw, Tam Tam Magic performing West African dance and drumming and the Slovenia mens chorus group Fantje na vasi.
