Bluegrass and High Tides Forever: DelFest 2014 Review
DelFest: May 22-25, 2014 (Cumberland, MD) Author: Aidan King Photos: Hanna Lane DelFest was my first true festival experience since the days of old, when I would dart around the Winterhawk bluegrass grounds (currently known as Grey Fox) year after year, with sun-bleached blonde hair flowing in the breeze. In those days, I tumbled down hills, hopped over colorful blankets, and befriended the resident pizza-vendor, who gave me free gobs of pizza dough as often as I wanted. If it was naptime, and (the late) Doc Watson’s set was about to start, my parents would simply entrust me under the protection...

Ziontific Summer Solstice Music Festival Stockbridge, VT – June 20th – 23rd Written by Mitch Smith This coming weekend—from Friday, June 20th until the wee hours of Monday morning, June 23rd—the sun will be riding high in the sky, shining its beneficent rays, and smiling down upon the festival-goers at  Ziontific Summer Solstice Music Festival in beautiful Stockbridge, VT, nestled nicely in the Green Mountains, surrounded by nature’s finest.

Light up Your Mind: A Preview for Electric Forest 2014
Electric Forest 2014 Rothbury, Michigan June 26th – 29th Written By Alexander Kratzert       It makes me glad to see that imagination and creativity are very much alive and well. In fact, I think that they are at an all-time high, at least lately, despite all the other noise that is out there. I also think that the conscious state of mind is at an all-time high; of course, despite all the other noise out there. It is a remarkable thing to be able to bring thousands of people together to enjoy art and life of all different faces;...
Blue Grass and Green Mountains: a Preview for Delfest 2014
Allegany County Fairgrounds, Cumberland, MD May 22-25, 2014           For quite a while, the bluegrass scene had been a foreign sound in my mind, a faction of the music community to which I had little-to-no experience firsthand. I simply had not given it the time, and the bulk of my listening was fixed upon electric instruments, distortion, wah pedals and psychedelic jams. Nothing like Jerry, Jimmy, or Jimi, I thought.
