And new Small Town Shade music should be out this summer. More info for Small Town Shade can be found: http://www.smalltownsha de.net

The first band on the main stage, the Delta Mike Shaw band had such a great 

reception last year that they were gladly invited to return this year to get 

the crowd moving to their own version of swamp rock. 

To start the entertainment off is local music heroes Tom Gath and Ted Walsh


Sunday has the return of the Cortland High Jazz band early at 1pm.

Following the jazz band is local singer songwriter Rachel Beverly, hailing from Virgil, NY, whose second EP is slated for this summer. 

Next is a musical “cugino” (cousin) to the Festival, Steve Daniels, who brings 

his very talented Swingtet to swing and sway us again. 

Following the Swingtet is a Festival favorite, the Old Timers Band who have 

been loved by the Festival even before there was a Festival. Make sure to 

clap loudly during “Caderna”!

Rounding out the Festival are two of the areas most internationally traveled 

musicians Johnny & Lonnie, who have been local and interntional favorites 

for years. 


In between the bands will be the incredible Joey Nigro

who so moved the crowd last year with her festive Italian songs

and traditional covers. A crowd favorite that will get the Italian 

dancing in all of us.
