Hip Hop Dancing From This Year’s American Folk Festival [VIDEO]
The Floor Lords hit the Penobscot Stage this weekend at the American Folk Festival. It's a showcase you wouldn't necessarily expect from the Folk Festival but certainly shows the diverse groups that the festival showcases.
The showcase not only featured great break dancing but also fantastic beat boxing.
