-->Best of the Fest!
We were delighted to see so many of the GLFF faithful out and about at this weekend's event! Over the coming weeks, we'll be thinking about next year's Great Lakes Folk Festival, which will be our 10th!
In honor of this milestone, MSU Museum festival producers are thinking of presenting an "all-alumni" slate of musicians and groups that really struck a chord when they performed here before.
Over these past nine years, we've been able to to present a staggeringly diverse and impressive group of traditional artists. Thanks to the City of East Lansing for supporting the GLFF music program.
Take a look at this list and let us know your faves! Send a note to email@example.com or post a note on our facebook page:
(Note: Some of our musicians, sadly, have passed on; some of the groups have broken up and the performers are in new groups; some simply won't be available; and others, especially those who have advanced in their careers, will be way out of our price range. We'll do our best to feature the best of the fest!)

We've just arranged to have a hula dancer to accompany Hawai'ian ukulele player Kimo Hussey.
Angela Dewey, from Ann Arbor, is a first-generation Polynesian-American and hula dancer. She began dancing hula at age five, and performed hula while growing up in Utah. She has taught beginning hula classes in Ann Arbor. Angela apprenticed with master hula dancer Dr. Amy Stillman who is also a hula scholar at University of Michigan through the MSU Museum's Michigan Traditional Arts Apprenticeship Program and through Stillman's Great Lakes Hula Academy. Angela learned Hole Waimea and other hula chanting and dances from Amy and hopes to pass on the tradition to her daughter and others.

In addition, we have some Balkan dancing in the works to go along with Rumen Shopov, who plays Bulgarian/Romani music.

Beyond the music
*NEW* "Grassroots Green" - As part of the summer of 2010 Great Lakes Folk Festival, the Michigan State University Museum will host tradition-bearers who carry on traditions that help restore, conserve and revitalize the planet. GLFF will feature traditions of grassroots citizens groups and individuals who engage in green occupations, environmental activism, organic gardening, local foodways, recycled arts and folk wisdom for taking care of the planet. See this link for a partial list of Green Artists participating this year. http://www.greatlakesfolkfest.net/Programs%26Activities/GreenArtsMarketplace/
Green kids activities, such as planting salad crops, making crafts from recycled materials, making yard art from recycled plant pots, making "produce" magnets, and learning about worm composting.
-->Volunteers: please save your plastic milk jug caps for a recycled crafts project for kids. Bring them to your packet pick-up meeting (at the MSU Museum on July 28, Aug. 3 and Aug. 7). Thanks!
*RETURNING AND EXPANDED* MSU Press Bookfest -- will feature a number of award-winning publications and authors from several Michigan and Great Lakes area publishers and booksellers, including many who write about environmental topics. Visit the MSU Press

MSU MUSEUM PLANS 'GRASSROOTS GREEN' 2010 GREAT LAKES FOLK FESTIVAL
Plans are taking shape for the Michigan State University's 2010 Great Lakes Folk Festival, set for Aug. 13-15 in downtown East Lansing.
For the 2010 event, the MSU Museum will host tradition-bearers who carry on traditions that help restore, conserve and revitalize the planet. The 2010 Great Lakes Folk Festival will feature traditions of grassroots citizens groups and individuals who engage in green occupations, environmental activism, organic gardening, local foodways, recycled arts in the Folk Arts Marketplace, and folk wisdom for taking care of the planet. Program curators Lynne Swanson and LuAnne Kozma note going green is not just a new trend. For many people a return to sustainable lifestyles, technologies and traditions means relying on time-tested folk wisdom and environmentally sound cultural practices.
"The festival will give visitors an opportunity to see how individuals have been skillfully and knowledgeably working for years on family and community-based activities to reduce, recycle, and reuse resources in their homes, workplaces, and communities," says Swanson.

Access to artistic excellence grant from NEA
The MSU Museum also received a $40,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Arts that promotes access to artistic excellence.
"I am thrilled that we are able to help art work in this country through more than 1,200 projects across this country. We are supporting projects that have great works of art at the heart of them; that work to inspire and transport audiences and visitors; and that create and retain opportunities for artists and arts workers to be a part of this country's real economy," said NEA Chairman Rocco Landesman. "It is our job at the NEA to support excellence in the arts, and to connect more Americans with more art, more often. This round of grants certainly furthers that mission.”
Learn more about the NEA grant program here: http://www.arts.gov/news/news09/Announce12-09.html
The MSU Museum's Great Lakes Folk Festival is one of the few events nationwide that presents National Endowment for the Arts heritage fellows and tradition-bearers who share distinctive cultural expressions.
Bookfest is back!
Also on tap for the 2010 GLFF is an expanded MSU Press Youngfolk Bookfest, anchored at the Abbot Road Stage, featuring meet-the-artist sessions. Discussion sessions throughout each day of the festival will feature authors reading from their books, and authors will also be available for signings. Graphic novelists, cartoonists and illustrators display their skills of storytelling through the use of visual art, and literacy experts and educators adding to the rich and enriching experience.
Call for sponsorships
While Michigan State University, the City of East Lansing and National Endowment for the Arts provide a base of support for the event, these resources are limited, and it is only the sponsorships that community colleagues so generously share that make the festival possible. The economic challenges facing so many families make it all the more critical that festival activities be available to everyone in our community.
Museum planners are working vigorously to ensure that the 2010 GLFF will serve the local and greater community this summer by providing a rich experience and an opportunity for celebration that is much needed! With your help, the 2010 Great Lakes Folk Festival will allow this singular weekend of celebration and learning to continue strongly.
Please consider making a donation in support of the festival, online here: https://secure.museum.msu.edu/webCredit/GLFFContributions/form.html .
This award-winning event is of the region's premier arts programs and a summer-time high note -- and is expected to draw more than 90,000 visitors throughout the weekend to celebrate culture, tradition and community. GLFF was named the state's top public humanities program by the Michigan Humanities Council.
MSU Museum staffers work year-round planning the event. The music program, sponsored by the City of East Lansing, includes blues, bluegrass, Cajun, polka, Tex-Mex and more musical traditions from across America and around the world. Watch for music program announcements in early 2010.
The Great Lakes Folk Festival is presented by the Michigan State University Museum, Michigan's first Smithsonian affiliate. The MSU Museum's Michigan Traditional Arts Program researches, documents, preserves, and presents our shared heritage and cultural expressions. Primary financial support for GLFF comes from the City of East Lansing, Michigan State University Office of the Provost and University Outreach and Engagement, nearly 100 corporations, foundations and organizations also support GLFF annually, as well as individual donors, "Great Friends."
GREAT FESTIVAL, GREAT THANKS!
The Michigan State University Museum would like to take a moment to send a hearty thanks to all the artists, volunteers, sponsors and friends who helped make the Great Lakes Folk Festival a memorable celebration of culture, tradition and community. Sales of both rain ponchos and sunscreen were surely at record highs!
