Hulaween
Hulaween 2014 @ the Spirit of the Suwannee
The crowd roared as the lights came on and they came out in all white Victorian-style suits with elaborate make-up and masks. They were the ghosts welcoming us to “The Afterlife”, the theme for this year. They were also accompanied by singers Rhonda Thomas and Tony White, as well as the Antibalas horns (who were all dressed in this theme as well). Everyone looked great! ...
Our Contemporary Folk Story: An Interview with Rising Appalachia’s Leah Song
As Hulaween draws near and the excitement begins to build, I was thrilled to be able to interview the lovely Leah Song, of Rising Appalachia.  I have been continuously impressed by this sister duo’s raw talent, versatility, and heart-warming sound.  I was able to grab a bit of Leah’s time on a Friday afternoon for a phone interview.  After chatting briefly about their most recent tour, we began discussing the roots of the Rising Appalachia movement. Abby: I am also from the Appalachian region in North Carolina, so I was wondering how you came up with the name Rising Appalachia? Leah: Yup everybody...
Festival Preview: Hulaween @ Spirit of the Suwanee
My heart swells as I prepare to head back to north Florida’s beautiful Spirit of the Suwanee Music Park and Campground. For the second year in a row The String Cheese Incident returns to this venue for their legendary Hulaween run.  Nestled in the heart of the Suwanee River Valley, the campgrounds truly are a sight for the dreamer’s eyes.   Spirit of the Suwanee is no stranger to amazing music.  They host multiple music festivals and concerts throughout the year.  Some festivals have been held there for 13+ years.  One great aspect of the festival grounds is that there is no “bad” place...

Hulaween 2010 @ the Hampton Coliseum
Halloween is arguably one of the best holidays of the year.  Now that our youthful time of trick-or-treating in the neighborhood has come to the end of its appropriate lifecycle, we look forward to a new type of treat with tricks: the Halloween live music event.  This year, 1/4th of Sparkleberry Lane had its sights set on the mothership, AKA the Hampton Coliseum in Hampton, Virgina.  Hulaween with the String Cheese Incident was about to take off.  This would be the band’s first Hulaween show since 2004, and other epic venues for Hulaween have included the Cox Pavillion in Las Vegas (2003), The Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles (2002), and...
