We're throwing a Solstice Party to welcome back the light, ring out the old year, and give a little "sneak peak" at our 2018 concert! Welcome the (almost) Winter Solstice at Dogwood, THIS TUESDAY, DECEMBER 19, at 8:00 pm! Join us for a night of fantastic folk & fiddle music featuring Richard Shindell, Bruce Molsky, Sara Milonovich and Jacob Bernz. All proceeds go to support Rootstock, as we celebrate our Northeast farming community, announce our rescheduled festival date, and enjoy some world-class roots music and seasonal cheer!
Richard Shindell: Richard Shindell is a writer whose songs paint pictures, tell stories, juxtapose ideas and images, inhabit characters, vividly evoking entire worlds along the way and expanding our sense of just what it is a song may be. Originally from New York, Richard now divides his time between Buenos Aires, Argentina and the Hudson Valley.
Bruce Molsky: Beacon’s own Bruce Molsky is one of the most revered ambassadors for America’s old-time mountain music. For decades he’s been a globetrotting performer and educator, a recording artist with an expansive discography including seven solo albums, well over a dozen collaborations and two Grammy-nominations.
Sara Milonovich: Beacon resident Sara Milonovich is the frontwoman of Daisycutter, a band which blazes a unique musical trail with their "mix of bluegrass and a twinge of political-punk attitude and lyrics" (Jeff Sweatman, The Corner). Sara cut her teeth as a highly sought-after side person in the bluegrass, folk, rock, americana, and celtic music worlds, and has performed and recorded throughout North and South America, Europe and beyond.
Jacob Bernz: Born and raised in Beacon, Jacob Bernz has been surrounded by the musical friends and colleagues of his father, two-time Grammy winning producer/musician David Bernz. Jacob is already a prolific songwriter and accomplished musician, who has shared stages with notable musicians including David Amram, Guy Davis, Tom Chapin and Arlo Guthrie.
