Downers Grove's Grovefest includes the traditional folk stage in Fishel Park, just south of the Two Way Street venue. Performers will be, in no particular order, Lonesome Eagle, Adrienne Foley (wait, they were on Folk Festival on Tuesday. What a coincidence!), Fox and Crowe, Lee Murdock, Eric Lambert and Friends, and the Plank Road String Band. Music starts at 9 AM, with each act doing a set, then a repeat of everyone. Just like shampoo. Perform. Rest. Repeat.
