Aug. 11: Give LEFF a chance

This is a very specialized note, for anyone who happens to be reading this on Aug. 11, near Lansing, Mich. Scoot over to the Lansing Eastside Folk Festival; it continues, at Kalamazoo and Allen streets, until 8 p.m., with the Tannahill Weavers -- on a 50th-anniversary tour from Scotland -- at 6:45 p.m.
