Following a successful 2023 festival event that saw thousands of attendees flock to the rolling hills of southern New Hampshire, Northlands Music and Arts Festival is thrilled to announce a new musical experience - The Maple Barn Sessions. This unique project, presented by Moat Mountain Brewing Co., will continue the spirit of the festival, delivering pro-shot performances from select bands on this year’s lineup.

The Maple Barn Sessions will showcase epic performances from Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, Dogs in a Pile, Kitchen Dwellers, The Nth Power Featuring Jennifer Hartswick, Yam Yam, Funky Dawgz, and Doom Flamingo. Each act performed three songs in the festival’s on-site maple shack, which was transformed into a recording studio for the festival weekend. The series captures each act’s raw energy and world-class musicianship with 4K multi-camera capture and professionally mixed audio.
