World Music Wednesdays

World Music Wednesdays is an annual musical festival celebrating folk music from around the globe hosted by the Old Town School of Folk Music in Chicago, IL. The event takes place throughout the month of August each year.

The type is organized in groups using elements from a music staff to separate each event. The rag of the copy is created by allowing each sentence to extend on its own line to form a rhythm within the paragraphs. The Old Town School of Folk Music's logo references the F-hole on a string instrument which is layered behind the lines of black type to emulate the strings themselves.

Typeset in Meta.
