ANN ARBOR – The Ark announced on Monday a change to the 44th Ann Arbor Folk Festival’s Saturday night lineup.

Robert Earl Keen, who was set to play, had to drop out of the festival due to unforeseen circumstances, according to a press release.

“We are delighted to announce that Todd Snider will step in to round out the bill for Saturday, January 30,” read a statement from The Ark.

This month marks 20 years since Snider first played at Folk Fest as an emerging artist. Since then, he has played a packed house at The Ark more than a dozen times.

Tickets are on sale now for both nights of the virtual festival. To see the full lineup of artists, click here.
