Now in its fifth year, the annual Blue Sky Folk Festival is a tradition that attracts national talent to Northeast Ohio. The festival, which takes place in Kirtland from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday, June 20 at East Shore Unitarian Universalist Church, aims to be an “all-day, family-friendly music festival that celebrates folk music — both its roots as the ‘music of the people,’ and contemporary original music by folk musicians here and now.”

The Pennsylvania bluegrass band Border Ride, alt-country crooner Rebekah Jean (pictured) and old-time acts SpYder Stompers and Sugar Pie are among the headliners. Master and amateur classes in clogging, guitar maintenance, songwriting, bluegrass banjo and other workshops will be available as well. There will be a bluegrass jam and an old-time jam involving featured performers Border Ride. General admission is $10, online $8, 12 and under free. Jammers bringing their instruments get $3 off festival admission, both presale and at the gate. Reserve tickets blueskyfolkfest.com
