The Ark will present their 43rd Ann Arbor Folk Festival fundraiser January 31 and February 1, 2020, at the Hill Auditorium with emcee Willy Porter.

Friday night features the collaboration of Calexico + Iron & Wine, bringing together Sam Beam’s sparse, soulful arrangements and quietly smooth vocals with the moody Southwest Americana of Calexico.

Add to that Ingrid Michaelson, known for her pure, infectious melodies and an Ark fan-favorite since 2008. Round out the night with The Lone Bellow, Cedric Burnside, Rainbow Girls and Elliott BROOD.

Saturday night features Nathaniel Rateliff in an acoustic setting and Mandolin Orange, who first wowed the Folk Fest audience as a rising band in 2015. Also, on the bill is Bettye LaVette, Molly Tuttle, John Moreland and Cold Tone Harvest.

Location: 316 S. Main St., Ann Arbor. For tickets and more information, visit
