Now in its fourth year, the Good Folk Festival offers plenty of local and regional culture — as well as a few from parts unknown — from craftspeople to artists to musicians to writers and even cartoonists. Really, it’s a catchall for anyone with unique and creative ideas, which is kind of what makes it so, well, unique and creative. The list of exhibitors is pretty much off the charts, in fact, and the music lineup is wide ranging to the point of including the surf/duo-punk of The Smacks! to the thoughtful folk-country leanings of Joel Henderson. It all goes down this weekend at the Kentucky Center for African American Heritage. Bring an open mind and be prepared to hang out with some genuinely good folks. —Kevin Gibson
