Prepare your ponchos because it’s time to get folky. On Saturday, November 29, local folk musicians like The Wayback Machine, Clay Brown, and Stefan George will be hitting the Boondocks Lounge stage in support of the 2015 Tucson Folk Festival.

Joining those performers are Shanti Foster, Gene Holmes, Les Merrihew, Gary Mackender, Mitzi Cowell, Bryan Dean, and Amochip Dabney. The event also promises some mystery guests.

According to the Tucson Kitchen Musicians Association website, the concert’s proceeds will “raise funds that help keep the Folk Festival free,” which means if you pay $10 to go to this show now, me and you and everyone we know can go to the Tucson Folk Festival for free next year. Of course, it wouldn’t necessarily be free for you because you’ve already paid $10 for it.

Regardless, if you’re in for a night of noodling and jamming, the Dance of Thanks 2014 folk fundraiser will be at Boondocks Lounge at First Avenue north of Fort Lowell Road. Music starts at 8 p.m. on Saturday and goes until 12:30 a.m.
