JUNEAU - The Alaska Folk Festival is accepting applications for performers who want to play 15-minute sets at this year's festival. The festival, an annual music celebration, is scheduled for April 7 to 13 at Centennial Hall.
Performers may play live music only, and no prerecorded tapes or slide shows are allowed. Festival performers are scheduled according to space and availability, and a main- stage slot is not guaranteed. Applications are available at www.alaskafolkfestival.org. Application deadline is Feb. 28.
The festival also is looking for someone to create a main- stage backdrop for minimal cost. Those interested in making a backdrop or volunteering to help out should leave a message at 463-3316.
