The Lewis and Clark State Historic Site in Hartford will be teeming with music tomorrow. The 12th annual music festival is scheduled from 10am to 4pm, and will feature performers at various locations around the 60-acre site playing traditional music. Some of the performers will be in period clothing.
Local musician Lindell Blackford of Godfrey will play the fiddle on Saturday. He says that is an instrument that was a big part of the Lewis & Clark Expedition.
