Big Orange Tarp at Falcon Ridge Folk Festival 2018

by AlanRowoth on July 24, 2018

We are thrilled to be returning once again to the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, this time to celebrate their 30th Anniversary. We play music under the BOT Wednesday-Sunday evenings and often well into the night. Wednesday and Sunday are Open Circles, starting around dusk. Thu, Fri, and Saturday we start with feature rounds and go Open Circle sometime later that night. On Friday and Saturday evening our features will be primarily made up of this years Grassy Hill Emerging Artists (featured on the main stage on Friday afternoon) and the Most Wanted Artists from last year’s showcase: The End of America, Ryanhood, and Heather Aubrey Lloyd. The Emerging Artists this year include (in order of their appearance on Friday):

1 – Jude Roberts – Woodstock NY
2 – Ari & Mia – Jamaica Plain MA
3 – Orly Bendavid – Brooklyn NY
4 – Mike Laureanno – Providence RI
5 – Katherine Rondeau – Burlington Twp NJ
6 – Rupert Wates – NYC
7 – Eliza Novella – Milton NY

I hope you can be here for their Friday afternoon main stage set, but if you can’t, Sally and I will attempt to give you a second chance to see each of them on one of the weekend nights at the BOT. Friday and Saturday Feature start when the main stage ends. In addition to Emerging Artists and Most Wanted, we always have a few additional tricks up our sleeve.

On Thursday night we are kicking off with a very special memorial called “Gone But Not Forgotten” celebrating the lives and music of David Glaser, Maggie Marshall, and Jimmy LaFave. This will start directly after the lounge stage finishes. I’m sure it will be unforgettable, so please plan on joining us if you can. We will follow this with several award winners from the Philadephia Songwriters Project and a few other special guests. That, of course, will finally lead into Thursday’s Open Circle.

I’m very pleased with the entire program and we look forward to sharing it with you.
