HILLSDALE — Joe Lavoie, who describes himself as one of those rare creatures, “a Conservative Folky,” looks forward to this time all year; he loves the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, which brings people from all over the East Coast to listen to all blends of music with the base of that unique folk style.
Dodds Farm, located at 44 County Rd. 7D, opened for festivalgoers to set up camp Wednesday, and the folk tunes from 59 established and emerging artists from four different stages started Thursday and continued through Sunday.
“I come for the sense of community,” said Lavoie, who is from Massachusetts and has attended the 29-year-old festival since 2002. “Everyone gets along like family. Everyone is very respectful.”
Lavoie said the first time he went to Falcon Ridge, he went alone.
“I made a friend at a bar, and we were a lot alike, and he told me I should go to this festival,” Lavoie said. “I look forward to this all year. It is great to come here to just get away.”
