Friends of Folk Festival


The Estes Arts District strives to carry the torch forward with Dick's goals in mind of encouraging new artists to perform. He brought a spotlight to new talents and encouraged ever evolving musical influences into the Friends of Folk style of entertainment. This style, encompassing both classic well loved music with fresh new voices, creates an exciting night of entertainment.

A scholarship fund has been established with Dick’s passions in mind. Dick Orleans was always supporting others to pursue their arts, whether music or photography ­or anything! He inspired so many and we want to keep that energy going.
