For the past three years now, The Tay Creek Folk Festival have been promoting their summer weekend festival through a series of mid-winter performances highlighting the festival and the musicians that help make it happen each year.
This weekend, friends and fans of the festival will gather once again for an evening of music in support of the area’s most intimate summer event.
“We have set the stage for several fresh faces in the Fredericton musical arena to perform in front of a very warm and appreciative crowd,” said TCFF’s Marianne Glover. “Popular local bands have donated their time to help promote the festival [at this event] and raise much needed funds to keep our project going.”
The TCFF has built a reputation as a fun, family friendly event mixing performances with open workshops and jam sessions. This year’s festival is planned for July 24-26, 2015 and will once again take place at the Tay Ridge Farm. A portion of the festival’s annual revenue goes to support music programming at Stanley High School.
“This summer, the festival will again be filled with the sounds of a wide variety of musical offerings,” said Glover. “There is something for everyone at TCFF from country and bluegrass to folk, rock and blues. We are definitely a variety show and embrace all genres of music with a warm and enthusiastic crowd.”
