2018 This years all day music festival will continue this Fall with a dozen musical acts presented on our alternating two stages. Plans are underway for a spectacular venue, our popular music workshops, and updated food and drink vendors serving up our audience a creative and welcoming cultural experience.
More details to come soon!
MUSIC FESTIVAL 2017
"...the organizers managed to scale the pinnacle of art-meets-organization on the first try;
it was stunning."
The day-long event included performances from both national acts as well as highly regarded regional performers, including The Mammals, Laura Cortese & The Dance Cards, Abbie Gardner, Matt Nakoa, The Chapin Sisters, Sleeping Bee, Diana Jones, Paul Sachs, Dayna Kurtz, M Shanghai, Amy Allison, Bobtown and Tim Erbach & the Delta 88.
Due to a high volume of interest and a small volunteer staff, bookings are currently by invitation only. If we move to allowing public submissions, we will include a link here for artists. Thank you for understanding.
WHAT WE ARE ABOUT
Behind the birth of every festival, there is a story. In this case, it involves a handful of music presenters and enthusiasts who wanted to move exposure for a few of their favorite artists from the living room to a larger stage. Five of the six Board members are long-time presenters of house concerts, a time-honored (and now trendy) movement.
Proceeds for the the Hudson West Folk Festival went to the cultural programs of 4th Street Arts, a co-sponsor of the event. 4th Street Arts presents yearly scholarships to local youth for the purposes of art and music education and advancement.
