The Philadelphia Folk Festival celebrates its golden anniversary this year, with many acts that have played the fest innumerable times through the years coming back to the Old Pool Farm. Arlo Guthrie, Tom Paxton, Tom Rush, and Jorma Kaukonen are in category. Old hands who've appeared slightly less often include the 11-piece David Bromberg Big Band, which shares a bill with Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue on Saturday afternoon, and Levon Helm, who headlines on Sunday. Local talent includes Birdie Busch, Hoots & Hellmouth, Suzie Brown, and Jim Boggia.

Hoots and Hellmouth, an eclectic band that plays rootsy music and has deep ties to Chester County, is scheduled to play two free concerts here this week, at Anson Nixon Park in Kennett Square on Wednesday and in Phoenixville on Saturday. Although the band often calls its style "new music for old souls," that's more of a riddle than a description. In an e-mail interview last month, Sean Hoots offered a translation: "Just call us a rambunctious roots/revival rock band. " Or a blend of folk, country, bluegrass, jazz and gospel.

Carolina Chocolate Drops The Carolina Chocolate Drops have parlayed their deeply traditional, roots-based music into wide-ranging popularity, especially among a younger crowd not typically drawn to old-time music. That is partly because of the vibrancy of their approach to the African American string-band music of North Carolina's Piedmont region, partly their willingness to sprinkle contemporary covers among traditional fiddle or banjo tunes, and partly that their live performances usually turn into energetic hoe-downs.

Don't phreak out, pholk phans: The Philadelphia Folk Festival has gotten a face-lift. This weekend, the annual gathering at the Old Pool Farm in Schwenksville will show off the results of a nip, tuck and infusion of new blood that means to put a fresh face on the 47-year-old festival. Familiar standbys will still be on hand: Judy Collins headlines on the main stage Saturday night, and the likes of Janis Ian, Kathy Mattea and Tom Paxton will precede her. But this year, there are a whole bunch of intriguing acts on the undercard.

The Christmas slowdown on the pop-music calendar will pick up before the year ends. On New Year's Eve, there's a wide range of worthy shows going on both hither and yon, from Danish dance duo Datarock , who headline the Electric Factory in Philadelphia, to gospel roots-rockers Hoots & Hellmouth , who play the Steel City Coffeehouse in Phoenixville, to Elvis Costello , who plays with his band, the Imposters, at the House of Blues in Atlantic City....

Is there anything going on in this Lone Star State capital city on a South-by-Southwest Thursday night? Well, let's see. There's Philadelphia rapper Amanda Blank, rhyming over at the Scoot Inn, and Philadelphia rapper Freeway, doing his thing at the Habana Bar Backyard. At 8 there's a tribute to the late, great Doug Sahm at Antone's, featuring Dave Alvin and others, and at midnight a tribute to the late, great Chris Gaffney at the Continental Club, featuring Dave Alvin and others.

MUSIC Guiding Lights Lo-fi innovators Guided by Voices are back in the swing, after a mere seven-year layoff. Their 2012 release "Let's Go Eat the Factory" finds the group still aiming for arty (and often absurdist) extremes with ditties like "The Big Hat and Toy Show" and "Doughnut for a Snowman," as dreamed up by front guy Robert Pollard and comrades-in-arms Tobin Sprout, Mitch Mitchell, Greg Demos and Kevin Fennell. All will be on board as the band returns to a favorite Philly haunt.

POP . . . plus The Frames: Glen Hansard has done so well with his chamber-pop side project (Swell Season) that we'd almost forgotten about the larger though still quite intimate and lilting Irish band in which he toiled first. If you love him as half of the Swells, you'll wanna take in his re-framing. With Jake Fleming. TLA, 334 South St., 9 tonight, $35.25, $75 (4 pack)

POP . . . plus "Weird Al" Yankovic: In this age of instant, YouTube postings, 50 wiseguys may beat "Weird Al" Yankovic to the punch with a parody of a new song, he pointed out recently. So the dude's given up on being first, focusing simply on being the best in lyrical cleverness, arranging and visual embellishment. Catch it all, onstage and in glorious 3-D!
