Folk U: Heather Wolf and the Wild Revival come to the Village Commons

On August 11, Heather Wolf and the Wild Revival played the seventh concert in the Friday Market Live Music series under the Village Commons tent.

Performing an eclectic mix of music, they captured the attention of the audience with their sweet harmonies, contagious energy, and vulnerability. The Portland-based band tries to come to Cortes every summer and were originally brought by Heather Wolf. Heather has family ties to Channel Rock and has been a both a camper and a zilla (camp councillor) with the Power of Hope.

Playing instruments as diverse as Appalachian dulcimer, mandolin, synth, and electric guitar, Wild Revival describes itself as “a band of troubadours wielding magical realism on the chariot of psychedelic folk rock”. Louis Belcourt hosted the concert live on Folk U Radio.
