With summer coming to an end and the leaves on the trees already changing, Catskill Chill was a perfect last hoorah for the 2012 festivals season. You would be hard pressed to find people complaining about the festival, which offered three full days of some incredible times.
Us Coloradoans are blessed with the summer opportunity to attend so many wonderful destination music festivals. From Telluride to Lyons, from Aspen to Nederland, the amount of music and fun available is really endless. Anybody considering moving from their ordinary neck-of-the-woods to Colorado could assure himself or herself that the music scene out here is at a peak in the summer months. I have two summer favorites that I never miss.
Catskill Chill Music Festival is getting the party started early with Catskill Chill Wednesday Jams, live at Sullivan Hall in New York City every Wednesday in August (there are 5!). As official house band of the celebration, FiKus will play each week and the lineups will be filled in with Chill Family artists who are slated to play this year's Catskill Chill Music Festival at Camp Minglewood in Hancock, NY.
Jomeokee Music and Arts Festival is pleased to announce additional artists to its first annual festival lineup. Patterson Hood & the Downtown Rumblers, the Captain Midnight Band, and The Danberrys have joined the lineup and Melvin Seals (Jerry Garcia Band) and Jeff Sipe have been added to a stellar cast performing a unique Everyone Orchestra set.
The 14th annual NedFest - returning August 24-26, 2012 to the Jeff Guercio Memorial Ballfield on the banks of Barker Reservoir in the beautiful high-country town of Nederland, Colorado - is proud to officially announce its daily scheulde along with single-day ticketing and camping information. Additional artists will be added to the scheulde as "tweeners," which will play in between the main acts, at a later date.
For the fans of the Grateful Dead most saw the time they spent as shows as an escape from reality, a dojo where the realms of the ordinary and the everyday vanished. The counterculture that surrounded that band was not only based on the years of memories captured in the hearts of millions, but like church, a Deadhead could truly have a mind-left-body experience and be closer to their spiritual selves.
Hancock, NY is a quaint town in the Catskills with little other than a bank, a couple bars, and a small grocery store. It’s home to a splendid property called Camp Minglewood, where kids run around barefoot all summer, go from arts and crafts to swimming to kickball and back to their tiny bunks. Then, the music takes over.
