2017 MUSIC

SATURDAY

12:00 - 2:00 Inner Loop - Meg Gehman trio

In between solo and full band, Inner Loop provides you with an 'unplugged' show full of surprises. This trio brings you top-notch acoustic musicianship performing reimagined pop songs, standards, ballads, and funky pared down versions of old R & B classics. Inner Loop also showcases Meg's original material, best defined as singer/songwriter influenced by pop, blues and soul. Inner Loop played the Festival many years ago and we're very happy to have them back ! 

2:00 - 4:00 Jimmy Highsmith

Critically acclaimed, Grammy Nominated and award winning Saxophonist Jimmie Highsmith Jr., has shared the stage with and opened for multiple Grammy Award winners, including Najee, Alicia Keys, and Chris Botti, just to name a few. He has recorded 8 top selling smooth jazz CD’s that have sold worldwide. Jimmie Highsmith Jr’s sax work represents some of the best in the Smooth Jazz Genre.

SUNDAY 

12:00 - 2:00 Tom Passamonte & Special Blend

This band, which includes guitar, bass and drums, has been playing and singing together since 1980. They appear regularly at Horizons at Woodcliff in Fairport, NY and Pomodoro’s in Rochester, NY. Their special style includes Pop, Rock and Roll, Blues, Jazz, R&B and a little Country. So there’s music for everyone’s listening pleasure.

2:00 - 4:00 Honky Tonk Hindooz 

The Honky Tonk Hindooz hail from high in the Himalachian mountains of the Indian subcontinent. Comprised of upright bass, guitar, and accordion, the Hindooz play an eclectic blend of psychedelic garage country and weirdo rock and roll oldies from the 40’s, 50’s, 60’s, 70’s and 80’s. They specialize in original countrified arrangements of popular songs by artists as diverse as Johnny Cash, The Kinks, Buddy Holly and The Clash, all in a jangly, swaggering Roots-Americana stew.  


We're proud to be one of Rochester's best Fine Art & Craft Festivals. Come see if you agree ! 
We'll update the info below once 2018 plans are finalized. In the meantime, we'll leave this up so you can see what we usually offer.
