The Lake Erie Folk Fest is a collaboration between the North East Ohio Musical Heritage Association, producer of the annual Blue Sky Folk Festival in Kirtland, and Shore Cultural Centre, a former high school turned innovative arts center in downtown Euclid. The afternoon workshops and evening concert bring together Euclid’s diverse artistic community and the Northeast Ohio folk music community in a late-winter cross-pollination of the arts.
