Mennofolk is coming back to the Great Lakes region- another soul-warming, toe-tapping event. The festival will be on the Bluffton University Campus, and it will feature three stages of excellent performers from Mennonite backgrounds- Singer Songwriters, Roots Music, and Hymns. As always, Mennofolk Bluffton is not going to be just for Mennonites, but from Mennonites, a tapestry of songs to be offered to the wider world, which come out of our collective experience of faith, music, and Anabaptist values. Performers include: El Zarpe, Kansas Bible Company, Anabaptist Bestiary Project, Strange Light, Sour Cherry Pie, andi and i, Brad Yoder, Heather Kropf, Cottonwood Jam String Band, Andru Bemis, Matthew Keeler, Five Times Harder, Ron and Savannah Freeman, Boondogglers Unplugged, Dave and Joanna Woodsmall and Karam Salem.
Tickets will be $15 for a weekend pass, children 12 and under free. Food and lodging is available from Bluffton University.
With three stages of music over two days , Mennofolk will bring together an amazing array of talent . Yet it is more than a showcase; this event is a fundraiser for a higher cause. Mennofolk musicians have agreed to donate their services, and all profit will be used to heal various aspects of war: The Iraqi Student Project, The Wounded Warrior Project, military recruitment counseling.
