Fundraising shows like these serve a multitude of purposes, not the least of which is to provide much needed cultural opportunities within our county, but also to provide much needed funding for the Ferdinand Folk Festival (which is free for the public to attend).

Nick Dittmeier and his band have opened for this year’s Folk Festival headliner, Hayes Carll. Dittmeier is a singer-songwriter from southeastern Indiana.  In early 2013, he branched out and started performing under his own name and established a new band. His first release was an EP called “Extra Better.” It garnered local and regional attention and radio play, while earning him a nomination for “Songwriter of the Year” at the First Annual Louisville Music Awards. Relentless performances ensued, while writing a new record. The new album, “Light of Day” waqs released in April of 2014.
