Evolution | Backwoods Pondfest | Peru, NY

When I read about the history of the Bazzano sister's in the local Essex, NY paper two weeks ago, I became even more intrigued by the small but powerful Backwoods Pondfest in Peru, NY. Even before our "official" move to the North Country last month, my wife and I had been thinking about attending this year's festival as a way to connect with what our new local music scene has to offer.

MONOLITH Announces Reforestation Project Details

The MONOLITH Festival and title-sponsor Esurance recently released details of the 2nd Annual Monolith Festival Urban Reforestation Project. This year the project will focus on youth with a special tree-planting event in partnership with Denver non-profit organizations The Park People and Cerebral Palsy (CP) of Colorado.

Jackson Hole Festival Part II

I woke up in Grand Teton National Park to the sounds of crazy mountain birds, and was glad not to have been eaten by bears or wolves during the night. The festival itself provides no camping but there is plenty to be found in the park and in the surrounding forests. On the drive to the festival grounds, I saw a moose, and nearly 30 people taking a picture of it. There was a lot to look forward to, and anyway I've seen moose before, so I didn't stop until I hit Teton Village.

Rothbury: Thursday with the Biscuits, EOTO, Lotus & Others

The funky, jammy, L.A. based Underground Orchestra proved to be a good start to the music of the weekend before the chaos started. Anthony Rogers-Wright proved to be an entertaining bassist and just one component of this group. Sam Feldman plays the mandolin, which I love, so this group had an instant in.

Jackson Hole: A Little Festival with Big Acts & A Lotta Heart

Summer seems to be coming quickly to a close, and the end of festival season is in sight.  This summer was somewhat special, as I was able to witness the birth of two new music festivals onto the scene.  In July it was the mega-sized Mile High Music Festival, and on August 16th and 17th the smaller, cozier Jackson Hole Music Festival.

Jackson Hole Music Festival Photos!

The Grateful Web's Sam Holloway trekked up to Jackson Hole last weekend to cover the inaugural Jackson Hole Music Festival.  Sam is working on his write-up now, but in the interim we invite you to check out his photos from the weekend.  Jackson Hole is one of the loveliest places in the lower 48 and we cannot think of a more pretty setting for a music festival.  Thanks to the folks who put on the event for their hospitality.

All Points West Music & Arts Festival - 2008

Opportunity – This is the reason why many of our ancestors came to the United States. When they arrived here, more than likely they came through Ellis Island.

Bonnaroo | 2008 | Review/Photos

"Tennessee, Tennessee, there ain't no place I'd rather be, Baby won't you carry me back to Tennessee."  As I packed up the car and prepared for my road trip, I couldn't shake the lyrics of 'Tennessee Jed' off my mind.  Chicago, IL to Manchester, TN – 534 miles.  This was going to be my triumphant return to the festival I had grown to love in its first three years, but hadn't been able to get back to since 2004.  Bonnaroo, for some, is the pinnacle of music festivals across the nation and even the world. 

Rebel Alliance Line-up at Yarmony

Conscious Alliance is proud to announce a very special late night Rebel Alliance Jam on Saturday, August 16th.  This Saturday is a full moon at YarmonyGrass, and a memorable highlight of the weekend's festivities will certainly be The Rebel Alliance Jam in the Revival Tent.
