Event description
National & international touring artist, Lindsay Lou, headlines 2020 Central Ohio Folk Festival!

About this Event

An undeniable powerhouse, Lindsay Lou’s remarkable gifts as a singer, songwriter, musician and performer demand the listener’s attention. Her singing floats over the masterful playing and deep groove of her band with both a fierce intensity and a tender intimacy.

In 2015, NPR named Lindsay Lou as one of the 12 best live performances. She has landed on the Top 50 AMA/CDX Americana Radio Chart, Top 10 Roots Music Report Folk Album Chart, and Top 30 Folk DJ Chart. It’s strong statement and a big step toward the sound of some of the great female voices like Emmylou Harris, Shawn Colvin, Cary Ann Hearst (Shovels & Rope), Gillian Welch and Bonnie Raitt.

Notable U.S. festival plays include Telluride Bluegrass festival, Merlefest, Stagecoach, Redwing, ROMP, GreyFox, and a slew of others.

Of [a] live show, fRoots Magazine reviewed “…[Lindsay Lou is] the most affectingly expressive singer since Amy Winehouse, backed by the new Punch Brothers.” The Boot, who featured Lindsay Lou Band as a “Can’t Miss Act at AmericanaFest 2018, says “...Lou brings introspection and masterful vocal work to her live show.”

FAQs

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

If you arrive earlier in the day, please follow parking directions from Metro Parks personnel. The free daytime festival activities attract a large number of folks and parking is in a large field. Beginning at 6:15pm, you are asked to move your car closer to main festival entrance; Metro Park personnel will help direct you.

If you are arriving around 6pm just for the concert, let Metro Park personnel know and they will direct you to the appropriate evening concert parking area(s). Please allow for a 5-12 minute walk depending on where you are being parked.

What can I bring into the event?

You can bring food and beverages into the grounds. Food service (food trucks) on grounds until 6:30pm. No alcohol is permitted in the Metro Parks. There is a portable heating unit in the Main Stage Tent. We are in a tent; please dress appropriately for the weather. Field lighting is provided up to the paved parking area; you may want to have a phone flashlight on hand.
