Where: Virtual 90-minute concert on the Mariposa Facebook Page
When: July 5, 2020 @7pm
Details: July 3 to 5 was supposed to be Mariposa Folk Festival weekend – hot and sunny – it would have been perfect weather to celebrate the 60th anniversary.
Instead, fans can now watch the Mariposa Virtual Festival 2020 – a free, pre-recorded concert available on Mariposa’s Facebook page at 7pm on July 5. The online party will also be available as a link on Mariposa’s website shortly after the live launch at www.mariposafolk.com. Audiences are encouraged to share their music-viewing experience using the hashtag #MariposaVirtualStage on social media.
The stellar lineup includes a “workshop” featuring The Small Glories, OKAN, and Mimi O’Bonsawin. Following the workshop, there will be two performances, featuring Blackie & The Rodeo Kings and This Way North. The Virtual Festival will be hosted by regular main stage host, and long-time friend of Mariposa – Treasa Levasseur.
