PRESS RELEASE

2013
MIDDLEBURY — The Midd Summer Festival committee is in the final stages of planning for its third annual festival, to take place in the historic Marble Works District on Saturday, Aug. 3, from 3-7 p.m.
 
This year’s Midd Summer Festival will build on the overwhelming success of the past two years, when lovers of beer, wine, cheese, cider and music have gathered to celebrate some of the state’s finest products. The festival will feature around 30 of Vermont’s best breweries, vineyards and distilleries as well as some of the state’s top artisanal cheese makers. In addition, there will be food vendors, and producers providing samples and showcasing their products.
 
The event includes live music from four featured bands, each providing a different mood for the festival. Hollis Brown, hailing from Brooklyn, N.Y., is described as a timeless funky blues band that blends Southern rock with a lyrical relevancy that ties in a modern pop theme. Also performing will be Vermont-based “groovegrass” threesome Jatoba; Cajun dance band Yankee Chank, who will introduce a traditional dance jam from southern Louisiana; and Middlebury local Mark Daly with an acoustic set of guitar and vocal tunes.
 
Proceeds from the event help benefit the Vermont Food Bank, the Addison County Firefighters, and the Better Middlebury Partnership.
 
Tickets for those 21 and over wishing to sample alcohol are $25 ($20 in advance), and $5 for those not purchasing drinking tickets or those under the age of 21; children younger than 6 are free. Adult tickets include admission to the event, a souvenir beer or wine sampling glass, 10 tasting tokens and unlimited sampling of cheeses. 
 
Tickets can be purchased online at www.middsummerfestival.com or at the following retail locations: Noonie Deli, Two Brothers Tavern, Middlebury Inn, Clementine, and Skihaus.
 
Many exhibitors will have bottled product for purchase. Also for sale will be T-shirts and souvenir bags that will be packaged with coupons and brochures from area businesses.

2013 Musicians

This year, we're happy to welcome Yankee Chank, Hollis Brown, Mark Daly and Jatoba to MSF.

Yankee Chank is a group of Vermont musicians who perform the traditional dance music of southwest Louisiana. Drawn together by a shared passion for cajun and zydeco music, the band has been performing in a variety of venues since 1996. Its performances offer an immersion into this marvelous unique music using fiddle, accordion, guitar and bass. Members include Mark Sustic (bass and percussion), Bob Naess (fiddle and vocals), Cannon Labrie (accordion and vocals), Jim Burns (guitar).Hollis Brown, hailing from Brooklyn, N.Y., is described as a timeless funky blues band that blends Southern rock with a lyrical relevancy that ties in a modern pop theme.Mark Daly, a Middlebury native, is back under a new moniker, Plato Ears. Tirelessly working over the past 6 months, he has been re-defining his sound into a blend of hip hop, soul, dance and indie rock. Recording two full albums already this year, he comes to the Midd Summer Fest to spread his latest material in a rare, stripped down acoustic performance.Jatoba: On the surface, the energetic, rhythmic, acoustic sound that the Brattleboro based trio describes with the equation "bluegrass + new-grass = groovegrass" is the perfect soundtrack for kicking back and enjoying life, particularly on a sundrenched summer day. But listen a little closer and you'll discover a group that is rich, compelling, adventurous and artistically gutsy. What musicians John Jamison (acoustic guitar, mandolin, sitar and vocals), Jason Scaggs (acoustic guitar, acoustic baritone guitar, banjo and vocals) and Jeff Richardson (bass, spoons, vocals)bring to the table is a mixture of surprising chord changes, high-speed instrumental breakdowns, complex rhythms, adventurous solos, dream sequences, tight three-part vocal harmonies, lyrics which strike the ears like Beat generation poetry and often tell meaningful stories of introspection and redemption - these are all part of Jatoba's colorful, courageous palette.

Music

Joshua Panda Band

Joshua Panda is an exceptional combination of country and soul, George Jones and Otis Redding, and has traveled with this unique sound to a unique place: Vermont. Integrating such soulful energy into his original pieces, Joshua has captured a spirit in his performance, which encompasses both the flailing of a fervent preacher and the intimacy of your best friend telling you a story.

Split Tongue Crow

A lifetime spent in the vast hills and rambling valleys of Vermont can do a lot for shaping a band's sound. Coming off more as a front-porch musical family than a independent band; Split Tongue Crow's backwoods harmonies and hauntingly earnest songwriting have become a favorite of fans and skeptics alike. One listen is all it takes to fall in love with such honest and unforgettable music.
