… the coolest of all may be the fact that anyone — you don’t need a festival pass — can show up to Sisters Coffee Company (273 W. Hood Ave.) on Saturday at 1 p.m. and watch Brian Blade conduct a workshop. For free.

I mean, this is truly an amazing opportunity to see an incredibly talented and influential musician up close and personal. I can’t stress this enough: Brian Blade workshop, Saturday at 1 p.m. at Sisters Coffee Company. It’s free and open to the public.

Otherwise, as a reminder: All-events passes to the festival are sold out. Day passes for Sunday are now available (until they’re gone) for $55 at the Will Call table, located near the Village Green stage. Find more info on Sisters Folk Festival here.
