Cost: Free-$5
Celebrating the life and art of Georgia-raised folk artist and Baptist minister Howard Finster, Finster Fest returns to the artist’s own sculpture haven, Paradise Garden, in rural Summerville, Georgia. Finster, a visionary in the realms of folk, outsider, and naïve art, is perhaps best known for creating the album artwork for R.E.M.’s 1984 LP Reckoning and for Talking Heads’ 1985 LP Little Creatures. Finster Fest hosts over 50 folk and fine artists and three stages of live music, showcasing blues, folk, bluegrass, and gospel offerings. Songwriter and country music underdog Roger Alan Wade, Knoxville-based bluegrass allstars Robinella, and Aaron Zimmer of City Hotel are among the acts slated to perform throughout the weekend.
