Mini Folk Song Concert

Four pairs of musicians that play live at events primarily in western Shizuoka Prefecture will hold a small folk song concert. With their guitars, piano and voices vividly bringing back the Showa Era, they will play famous tunes from artists that include Kaze, Eigo Kawashima and Miyuki Nakajima. The concert is sure to stir nostalgia in those from that generation and a refreshing retro feel to younger audiences, so don’t hesitate to attend! Admission is free.
