# 1. Week two of our UTEC Fresh Roots CSA – Tweed Squares. Have I ever heard of a Tweed Square? No. Do I know what one is? No. Do I care? Not at all, they are delicious!
#2. The Lowell Folk Festival!!! The largest free folk festival in the country and my absolute favorite weekend of the summer. Music, food, fun, friends, crafts – it’s a blast!
This weekend, downtown Lowell turns into one great big party full of music from all over the world, including some of my personal faves – bluegrass, polka, zydeco, old time New England barn dances, blues, New Orleans jazz, Puerto Rican cuatro – the list goes on…
There’s also all sorts of tasty ethnic food – Jamaican, Greek, Armenian, Laotian, Latin American, Soul Food, Portuguese – YUM! AND crafts, lots of crafts, from some of my favorite people – Amanda at Brick Mill Studio and Liz at Made in Lowell.
The Friends of Western Avenue Studios are also hosting a Funk Brunch on Sunday morning – food, art, music, fun – we’ll be there, why not? It’s a bargain too, $5 suggested donation. If you’re in the Boston area, it would be a crime if you didn’t check out the Folk Festival!
Where else can you get African food and Greek food in the same place?

The festival looks like a great time. I wish we had something similar in Kalamazoo! We are having taste of Kalamazoo right now, but it’s a lot smaller and pricier.

sorry that i didn’t get to meet you on sunday, but thanks for coming to western ave for the brunch. i was so busy having fun that i took ZERO pix. if you happened to snap any, i’d love to see some.
i was the announcer/organizer guy who nearly had a nervous breakdown at the mic introducing the band.
