The Folksoul Band creates new music from old traditions, combining horns, vocals, wild rhythms, and New Orleans Mardi Gras spirit to create music for celebration and dancing. A seven piece group, they also work in smaller ensembles, sometimes as Lunatic Fringe or as The Folksoul Ensemble.

Two members, Leslie Vogel and Fred Simmons, stopped by the Folk Show to play in the studio and talk about their upcoming Folksoul Festival 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., August 18th, in Greenfield NH.
