Guide to Music Festivals on CT Style

Yesterday I did a segment on CT Style News Channel 8 WTNH, presenting Blue Crane Music’s Guide to CT Music Festivals.   The segment featured photos from 2015 festivals, including:

  • Kate Callahan at Connecticut Farm and Folk Festival, which is being held for its second year on June 4, 2016 in Glastonbury
  • Goodnight Blue Moon at Podunk Bluegrass Festival for the inaugural acoustic & americana second stage, which is returning again at the August 11-14, 2016 festival in Hebron
  • The Michael Cleary Band at Middletown Music Festival, which is celebrating its 5th year this August 6 & 7, 2016

We also shared a calendar for upcoming April and May 2016 festivals.  The full season’s schedule is pictured above.  I tried to capture all the large music festivals as well as a few unique festivals that include music by CT artists.  Coming up soon we’ve got –

  • Elm City Folk Festival, New Haven, April 16-17, which will have two clients of Blue Crane Music performing – Bill Benson and Podunk Throwbacks
  • Meriden Daffodil Festival – an annual favorite, 3 stages of music, April 30 & May 1
  • Locapalooza in Shelton on May 7
  • Northeast Fire & Arts Festival May 13-15 in Oxford, which is all about fire arts like fire spinning and swallowing but also has 2 days with rock and hardcore music, which is a great addition for CT

But there are TONS MORE local festivals in towns all over the state.  I’ll be at Simsbury Flea & Smorgasbord on April 30 helping out with the band lineup of Carrie Johnson Band, HannaH’s Field and Balkun Brothers.  Drop by and say hello.

Which festivals are your favorites?  Did I miss any?  Leave a comment!
