Folmer, whose music is generally classified as "Americana," will perform a concert of all original songs ranging from mellow ballads, to high-energy tunes, to songs of off-beat humor.

Tickets are $10. Food and beverages, plus wine and beer (for donations), will be available on the mansion porch overlooking the Great Lawn. Doors open one-half hour before the concert and seating is general admission.
