Rosanne Cash at the Rhythm and Roots Festival





“Squirrel Nut Zippers, March Fourth, Roseanne Cash Highlight Rhythm and Roots music and dance festival”

By Nancy Lasher and Jordan Hamowy

Rosanne Cash only played one set over the three-day festival, but it was outstanding. She took center stage, and although her songs and vocals were great, what really stood out was her phenomenal band. Although each band member had his moments, her husband and musical director John Leventhal’s lead guitar kept the crowd spellbound from one solo to the next.

27th Annual Falcon Ridge Folk Festival

July 31-Aug 2

The 27th Falcon Ridge Folk Festival takes wing July 31 – Aug 2. Homegrown from a humble hillside gathering, it has become a Folk Music & Dance Mecca. Campers and day-trippers alike converge at its yearly Brigadoon-like setting at the Dodds Farm in Hillsdale, NY.

The fest boasts concerts and workshops, hours of dancing on their 7000 square foot floor, a delightful Family Stage, lively Activities 4 Kids tent, an international food court and an array of vendors. Something for everyone, be it foodie expo, craft fair, dancing the night away, family fun or round robin song swaps. The dance tent starts with wakeup yoga and grooves until 2AM Friday and Saturday. The fest is accessible and ASL-interpreted.

Palate pleasers aplenty line the midway from Caribbean curries to Thai noodles to hand roasted coffees to Persian, Bavarian, Moroccan, Mexican, Cajun & Italian cuisines. Lest we forget, probiotic pickles, organic juices and good ole American comfort food. Over 50 vendors present their wares much of it handmade or fair trade, emphasis on eco-friendly.

Artists include multiple Grammy recipient & quintessential art songstress, Judy Collins, fest MVPs the Slambovian Circus of Dreams, folk fusionists the Duhks & international mime artist Hoopoe. Philadelphia folk-rockers June Rich stop by on their 20th anniversary reunion tour. Pete’s Posse, Garnet Rogers, Roosevelt Dime, Pesky J. Nixon, Susan Werner, Wild Asparagus, Jesse Lege & Bayou Brew & many others appear over the weekend.

Music runs the gamut from Celtic to Cajun to Americana to Blues, Bluegrass, Roots, World & Swing with the fest’s trademark singer/songwriters and Contra Dance bands at the center. Artists from Texas, Louisiana, Chicago, Minnesota, North Carolina, Nashville, Winnipeg, Ontario, Wales and closer to home are featured.
