Folk, Americana, Bluegrass, Country, Gospel, Jazz…
Music for just about any taste, plus arts, crafts, food & more

JUST RELEASED:  The internationally recognized Folk-Americana band The Way Down Wanderers will headline the
2019 Ol’ Front Porch Music Festival!

“Credit The Way Down Wanderers with giving a nod toward tradition and having the gumption to break the mold. While they take their cues from bluegrass and other Americana influences, the melodies that dominate this self-titled effort vary
substantially rather than being bound to any one style specifically.”  – Relix magazine

For more information, including performance videos, go here:

In addition to The Way Down Wanderers, the lineup for the 2019 Ol’ Front Porch Music Festival includes Hank, Pattie & The Current, Chatham RabbitsRiver Ratz, Hooverville, and Cane Mill Road, among many others. For a more complete list, go here.
