Pete Seeger calls him “one of the best writers in America.”

Obviously, Scott Alarik is one of the most trusted and revered folk music writers around. He provided insightful coverage of the Boston folk music scene for more than 20 years in The Boston Globe, as well as Sing Out! magazine. He’s also an accomplished and acclaimed singer-songwriter in his own right, who has performed regularly on “A Prairie Home Companion.”

Falcon Ridge Folk FestivalThe never-ending parade of music festivals continues with the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival at Dodds Farm in Hillsdale this weekend. Along with last month’s Old Songs fest, it’s the biggest and best annual folk-oriented festival. But while Old Songs focuses on traditional folk music, Falcon Ridge highlights the contemporary singer-songwriter end of the folk spectrum.

Among the many singer-songwriters slated for main stage performances are Mary Chapin Carpenter (who closes out the fest on Sunday evening), Mary Gauthier, Greg Brown, Tracy Grammar, Susan Werner, Dan Navarro and Buskin & Batteau. One of the fest’s highlights promises to be Friday’s Nippertown debut of the new folk super-trio Red Horse, which features Eliza Gilkyson, John Gorka and Lucy Kaplansky. Each of them will also offer up solo sets on Saturday.
