2. Spirit of the Woods Folk Festival - Brethren (Mid June)

Back in 1978 some folk music lovers, spurred on by the success of barn dances and music potlucks in the area, decided to organize a little festival. The first Spirit of the Woods Folk Festival was held on June 17, 1978, in Brethren. It was a free event and featured Iowa Rose, Flatpicker's Local 169, Argo Pond, Dekalb, Dan Gellert, the Flatland Ramblers, Quality Quinn and the Lost World String Band.
