Sisters Folk Festival announces ticket sell-out

The Sisters Folk Festival's 2012 event scheduled for September 7-9 is officially sold out.

The festival made the announcement on Sunday. It is the first time the 17-year-old organization has declared a sellout in advance of the event.

"One of the keys to the success of the Sisters Folk Festival is that it has always been an accessible, intimate experience for patrons and musicians alike," says Jim Cornelius, chairman of the Sisters Folk Festival Board of Directors. "In order to preserve the unique character of the event, it's imperative that we not over-crowd our venues."

The festival features three large, tented venues and several other small venues located in businesses, all concentrated in the downtown area.

"All our venues are going to be full throughout the festival," Cornelius noted. "If you want to see a particular artist at a particular venue, you'll want to be there early. For example, James McMurtry is only playing once, at the Village Green venue, and that's going to be full. Of course, there's great music going on at every venue all the time, so patrons will have plenty of opportunities."

A very limited number of day passes for the festival's Sunday program are currently available.

The 2012 Sisters Folk Festival lineup includes James McMurtry, Mary Gauthier, the Walking Woody's Road tribute to Woody Guthrie, gypsy jazz guitar great John Jorgenson, Abigail Washburn, Gregory Alan Isakov and a wide array of artists from blues to bluegrass.
