TRIBES HILL MUSIC FESTIVAL AT JOHN JAY HOMESTEAD SEPTEMBER 14TH

TRIBES HILL MUSIC FESTIVAL AT JOHN JAY HOMESTEAD SEPTEMBER 14TH
Dear Friends,

Save the date!  Sunday, September 14, 2014, from 11 am until 6 pm is the day of the Tribes Hill Music Festival at John Jay Homestead.  This event is the first collaboration of the Tribes Hill music community with the historic  John Jay Homestead park and cultural center, located on Route 22 at 400 Jay Street in Katonah, NY.

Our headliner is RED MOLLY!!!  Also featuring the Sloan Wainwright Trio!!  Plus James Durst, Fred Gillen Jr., Susan Kane and Matt Turk in the round!  Also performing:  The Levins (the hottest folk duo around), Larry Kolker with Judy Kass, Pluck & Rail (featuring George Gierer), Steven Frieder (a jazzy young  sax virtuoso), M.R. Poulopoulos, and the EarthTones.  Music on the main stage is from noon until 6 pm.  And if you’d like to make your own music, bring your instrument and take a turn at our song circle/jam tent!

On the beautiful and spacious grounds of John Jay Homestead we will also have locally-produced food and beverage vendors, arts & crafts vendors,  activities for children, sound engineering by Iris & Pete, solar power by Solar Punch, and a really big tent in case of rain.  And actual plumbing!

Admission is $20 day of show, $18 in advance at www.TribesHill.com, $15 for students and seniors, and free for children under 12. Parking is free and easy.

Don’t want to pay admission?  Then volunteer!  This is a grass-roots event and we need a lot of help.  Volunteer tasks include advance publicity, program ad sales (by commission – know any college students looking to earn a few bucks this summer?), set up and take down, directing parking, musician hospitality, sound engineering and backstage help, and manning (or womaning) the Tribes Hill/merch table.  

To volunteer  email us at festival@tribeshill.com.  

Likewise, please email us if  you are a food or crafts vendor who would like to participate (the fees are low), or if you’d like to place an ad in our program.

Thanks very much and have a wonderful Summer.
