Our emcee for the festival is Ian Zolitor, the host of WXPN radio's Folk Show, which is broadcast from Philadelphia on Sunday nights from 8 to 10 pm. Raised in a folk-musical family, Ian is a bassist and guitarist, and has attended music festivals since he was a baby.  Gene Shay, Ian's mentor and previous host of the Folk Show, says: “He plays music, he books shows, he’s branching out into a lot of things that I did not,” Shay says. “He’s going to be somebody very special to the music scene.”
