For the second year running the Folkale Festival will showcase a myriad selection of Israeli folk artists, singers and songwriters. Last year over 200 music lovers attended the festival and, building off that success, this year's plan is quite ambitious. Set to begin tomorrow at 2 p.m., the music of 29 different artists will fill the two-story space at Shor 3 well into the night. The list of participating acts includes well-established ones on the local folk scene as well as lesser known artists poised to become integral members of the domestic folk tapestry. Of course, English has entered into the folk vernacular here but the native tongue still holds strong. Included among the acts set to perform are Visiting Hours, Mary & The Baby Cheeses, Eli Rosen, Yair Yonah, Mr. Heavy & Mrs. Low, Yonatan Birnbaum and Katamin, The latter, led by Asaf Tager (pictured), have just returned from a series of shows in Japan, self-describe their music as "little strange songs about dirty little secrets." Tickets may be purchased for NIS 40 either in advance at the Third Ear (03-621-5220) located at 48 King George, Tel Aviv or at the show at Shor 3 located at 3 Moshe Ma‚or Street.
