Femme Fatale: a fun event with a serious purpose

Though new to the job, the Alaskan AIDS Assistance Association's Southeast coordinator, James Hoagland, is particularly well suited to plan this year's Femme Fatale drag show fund-raiser: he spent more than 10 years traveling the country as a professional drag artist under his stage name, Gigi Monroe. For him, it's all about sharing positive energy.

Ravens: Smarter than you think

In many Tlingit stories about Raven, we are invited to view these creatures not just as birds, but as emissaries of a natural world we don't fully understand, who can tell us something about ourselves and how to live, and about our relationship with other creatures.

Folk fest profile: Maridon Boario

Maridon Boario's first Folk Festival band, The Manholes, was a temporary collaboration that made only one appearance on the Centennial Hall stage in 1997. While short, the performance marked the beginning of a long relationship with the festival for Boario herself.The local bassist has played on the main stage or at dances at nearly every Folk Fest since: with the Panhandle Crabgrass Revival Band (2000-2006), Sean Tracey & the Splinter Pickers (2008-2009), Honky Tonk Habit (2009-2010), Fais Do Do (2012) and the North Country Cajun Club (2013), among other acts.

Folk Fest profile: Mike Truax

One of the best things about the Alaska Folk Festival, said longtime performer Mike Truax, is its consistency. The rules that defined it when he first got on stage - free to the public and open to all performers - still define it today.
