On one snowy winter night, an impressive crowd gathered at JP’s Magnolia Loft. Those who braved the weather were treated to a gem of a show at the third edition of Weird Folk Fest. All four bands fall loosely under “folk music” but that’s just the starting point. The sources of these weird sounds were several ukuleles, a few upright basses, a trombone, a harp, and others. Local act Nosy Mangabe performed and hosted, and they’ll be hosting Weird Folk Fest’s 4th installment on February 21 at Out The Blue Too.
