Posted By on Thu, Sep 2, 2010 at 2:33 PM

Here's a recent video interview with Big Jim Griffith, one of the founders of the Tucson Meet Yourself Festival. The 2010 festival takes place Oct. 8, 9 and 10. See our interview with folklorist Maribel Alvarez here. The festival will continue to have multi-cultural offerings of music, dance, food and traditional crafts, but this year there will be art installations and new venues. Check out the event locations:
