Folk music can be played anywhere: on rickety stoops of apartment buildings, on Wharf Street cobblestones late at night, or in mall parking lots. A good folk venue doesn't reinvent the wheel; it just needs to fine tune the experience. That's what One Longfellow Square does. For five years running, they've skipped the schmaltz and made that little corner into an intimate little cabaret, quietly hosting more touring acts than anywhere else in Portland.
