FALCON RIDGE 2020 SHARE & SHELTER IN PLACE FEST

We will start the VIRTUAL SHOW on Thurs July 30, going each day of the 2020 fest dates thru Sun Aug 2. It will be archived for replay & will include day by day programming, from Thurs Pre-Fest Tastings, Lounge Stage, the Grassy Hill Emerging Artist Showcase and all of our confirmed artists in one way or another, along with some archival footage, special messages from long time vendors, radio sponsors, dancers, campers, former artists and fest friends of all stripe.

We have put together a team to produce and edit video and will invite all 2020 confirmed artists plus a few special guests to participate, gonna be a big job and in some ways, am very glad to be so, so, so busy.

And as mentioned THE GRASSY HILL EMERGING ARTIST SHOWCASE will be part of the online festivities, deadline to apply is next Weds June 10. Info and application avail at

We will take down the TICKET ORDER page shortly, many of you have asked that we leave it a few more days so you can still buy a tix as a way of supporting the fest thru this time. Much, much thanks to all for that generosity. Your 2020 tickets and other fees will be honored at the next festival.

We are also about to launch a FRFF sponsored COVID-19 CommUNITY READER and later, an online ARTIST MANAGEMENT Seminar as well. The C-19 READER will take the form of a Facebook Community page. Tho most of you know me only thru Falcon Ridge, my GIG, so to speak, before that was Molecular Biology, Virology and Immunology so have gone back to working on some of that.

We will send more info on those projects ASAP. Hope all of you are well and staying safe, safe, safe.

Thinking of all of you as we work and take time to reflect on all that is happening in the world, good and bad, hopeful and tragic, values to keep and those so needful of change. You can always Email me directly at FalcRidge@aol.com

Andrew VanNorstrand of Great Bear to release debut solo album at Falcon Ridge Folk Festival

Andrew VanNorstrand of Great Bear to release debut solo album at Falcon Ridge Folk Festival

A message from Andrew:

The album is called That We Could Find A Way To Be and these new songs focus on some of the things I care about most – the complicated intersections of love, faith, loss and uncertainty, queerness and the search and struggle for  understanding.

 

We are in the final week of a Kickstarter to help us fund the album and it’s been going really well; we’ve already made our initial goal and have set an ambitious stretch goal of $13,000 to cover art design, a couple videos, printing and (especially) publicity and promotion. Pre-order your copy of the album TODAY!  You’ll get a download of the tracks in late June or July; plenty of time to learn the lyrics so you can sing along with us at the festival!  Plus there are some other cool rewards that we’re offering as well so you gotta check it out. This is all so exciting! I’ll be performing all weekend at Falcon Ridge, accompanied by Anna Patton on clarinet and Dana Billings on keys and percussion. Hope to see you there. THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH! Have a great day,

 

Andrew VanNorstrand
