CU Folk and Roots Festival announce first artists

Believe it or not, September isn’t simply going to be dominated by indie rock or guitar virtuosos. It’s going to be a folking great time as well. OK — bad pun. But seriously, some great acts right out of the gate for the Champaign-Urbana Folk and Roots Festival, the newest group to make good on their promise to deliver a music festival in what is fast becoming the land of them. The CUFRF will be September 25 and 26 in several downtown Urbana venues.
