Prairiefolk is scheduled to headline this week’s Friday Night Live event in downtown Salina.
The regional duo is scheduled to perform at 7 p.m. Friday in Campbell Plaza, 126 S. Santa Fe. The performance is open to the public at no charge and is family friendly, according to Salina Arts and Humanities, the coordinator of Friday Night Live events. Lawn chairs are encouraged and coolers allowed – cans only, please.
Prairiefolk is an Americana duo from Lindsborg featuring Tyler Atkinson and Jesse Crawford. Though their sets include old-time fiddle tunes, folk songs, and the occasional pop cover, the duo focuses primarily on producing original music. With banjos, guitars and brother harmonies, Prairiefolk reaches for musical moods as sweeping as the plains – at times brooding as a nascent summer storm, at others tranquil as a Kansas sunset.
Experience Prairiefolk live and you’ll hear murder ballads, re-imagined biblical tales, and songs of lament about social ills, with no shortage of self-deprecating banter, and banjo jokes.
