The focal point of this weekend’s schedule is the annual Brooklyn Folk Festival, taking place at The Bell House Friday through Sunday. The festivities includes sets from acts like Frank Fairfield and The Tillers, as well as a Pete Seeger tribute sing-a-long and the notably notorious “banjo toss.”

Check out the schedule for the fest right here.

But that’s not all that’s happening ’round these parts this weekend. Horse Feathers is back, with two shots thrown at you to catch ’em. And one of our new favorite things is Mat Davidson (of Spirit Family Reunion)’s solo venture, Twain. You can catch him along with our pal, known in this context as Leland Sundries, on Monday at Rockwood. Check out this Twain performance from 2010. It’ll give you feelings.
