American Rhythm Folk Ensemble visited our studio today, lifting our spirits through song and dance. They are a group of talented singers, dancers and musicians representing the United States at international folk festivals throughout the world and entertaining audiences here at home.

They returned home in June from touring and performing in Wyoming, Nebraska, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, New York, Pennsylvania, Missouri and Colorado.
