Road To Kingsville Folk Fest Kobo Town Poster

Road To Folk Fest presents Juno Award, Polaris Prize Winning Kobo Town featuring live music, live art, and a live auction at The Grovedale House in Kingsville on Saturday, November 23, 2019.

Kobo Town play an infectious brand of calypso that they advertise as “calypso for the new millennium”. The Polaris Prize and Juno Award winners were one of the big hits at last summer’s Kingsville Folk Music Festival.

Kobo Town’s latest album, Where the Galleon Sank, won the Canadian Folk Music Award for World Group of the Year 2017, and the 2018 JUNO Award for Best World Music Album. Additionally, one of the songs on the record – a reprise from the group’s first release in 2006-was covered and released by Carlos Santana as “Breaking Down the Door”.

The evening will also feature six Arts Society of Kingsville artists creating original art throughout the evening. Artwork will be auctioned off at the end of the night!
