BALTIMORE (AP) - Screen painting, marbles and rhythm and blues are coming together at a festival in Baltimore celebrating the state’s wide variety of folk traditions.

The Maryland Traditions Folklife Festival runs from noon to 8 p.m. Saturday at the Patterson Theater in East Baltimore.

R&B; singer Winfield Parker is the headliner on an outdoor stage, and there’s an eclectic lineup of other acts, including Ethiopian and Polish dance music, a klezmer band and Baltimore club DJs.

Food choices include Lumbee collard sandwiches, Nepalese dumplings and ice cream from the Prigel Family Creamery in Baltimore County.

Maryland Traditions co-director Chad Buterbaugh says folk traditions help people connect across generations, and make Maryland a unique and vibrant place.
