Category: community 224

Sappyfest announces Jeremy Dutcher, U.S. Girls, Bonjay, BA Johnston and more. 

U.S. Girls, Bonjay, Julie & The Wrong Guys, Leanne Betasamosake Simpson, Jeremy Dutcher, Jennifer Castle, Special Costello, The Burning Hell, WHOOP-Szo, Witch Prophet, and BA Johnston are the first wave of acts announced for SappyFest 13. This year’s programming also includes readings by Stereoblind author Emma Healey.

“This is an important moment! This moment of making plans, of deciding to come together, here, in this way, with kind and open hearts: volunteers, organizers, participating artists, the full community of active listeners, those who cook and those who clothe and those who build. When so many things would keep us apart, we choose to come together; when so much of the world is defined by anger, we choose to welcome each other. To make a plan is to claim a hope for the future,” says Steven Lambke, Creative Director for SappyFest. “We have been making plans! This year we are thrilled to welcome some of the most exciting and celebrated artists at work today. We welcome artists who moved us with their music at the first note, and for who celebration will surely come. We welcome poets and storytellers, thinkers and dancers. And of course, we welcome back old friends, some who we haven’t seen in far too long a time, with new songs to sing, new stories to tell.”
