Festival artists visit Wicomico Co. students

SALISBURY, Md. – Students in Wicomico County got a sneak peak of the Folk Festival on Friday.

Artists who will be performing at the festival stopped by several schools throughout the county to meet with students and put on a show.

School officials tell 47 ABC that this is something the students don’t typically get to see, or hear, and so exposing them to different types of music and artists is something exciting.

And officials tell 47 ABC they hope the performances will stick with the students in a number of ways.

“It¬†should inspire their creativity to go out and listen to different types of music, explore different types of folk art, and other cultures,” Jim Baer with Wicomico Public Schools said.

Of course you can catch the artists at the Folk Festival right here in Salisbury which runs until Sunday.
