30 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, Sept. 22 - Sept. 28, 2000 Folk Festival draws a crowd, raises money Joe Santangelo was one of the many vendors who sport- ed his wares at the folk festival. Santangelo's folk art is a combination of hand-carved and machine-worked sculp- ture. 'firm a modern carver," he said. 'There are folky chickens and birds of kinds." Gary Richman of Henlopen Acres fiddles along on the sideline as musicians on the stage woo the crowd with folk songs from bygone eras. Proceeds from the festival benefitted the Kiwanis Club of Rehoboth Beach and the Center for the Inland Bays. Kerry Kester photos Musician Steve Forbert, the folk festival headliner, stunned the crowds with his rich, soulful music. The next folk festival scheduled in Delaware is the Delmarva Folk Festi- val set for 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 14, in Hartly. To order tickets or for more information, contact Ethel Matney at 302-735-4789. Tickets are $11 for members of Delaware Friends of Folk and $13 for nonmembers. Jimmy Churchman, 3, of Milton shows his twinkle toes as he dances to vivacious music at the folk festival A little local jamming brought Peggy Raley, Nassau Vineyards vint- ner, and Gary Richman, violinist from Henlopen Acres, to the stage with Crabmeat Thompson, who entertained listeners in the late af- ternoon. Thompson also used the festival as an opportunity to an- nounce his candidacy for president, noting in the interest of political correctness, he will change his name to Felix for the duration of the campaign. His platform is composed of a desire to see Pete Rose in- stalled in the Baseball Hall of Fame and to conduct an Internet elec- tion to remove three candidates from the presidential ballot box. The top-three vote getters, he said, will then be banished to New Jer- sey for three years. Shown are (l-r) Richman, Thompson and Raley.
