October 16-18, 2014, Ozark, AR

WAY OUT YONDER IN ARKANSAS…On the weekend of October 16-18, 2014 Yonder Mountain String Band will be hosting the Harvest Music Festival for the 9th straight year on beautiful Mulberry Mountain in Ozark, Arkansas. This festival has grown every year and draws many of the top performers in the Bluegrass & Americana genres. The festival also offers exposure to many of the new & upcoming bands as well.

This has been a year of changes for Yonder Mountain String Band. I have seen them perform several times this year and have felt a renewed energy level in their performances this year. At Harvest Festival this year, they will be joined by Allie Kral & Jake Joliff and many special guests. As hosts of the festival, Yonder will be headlining all three nights.

Joining Yonder on the lineup this year are many top live acts including Railroad Earth, Devil Makes Three, Carolina Chocolate Drops & Donna The Buffalo. The Shook Twins are also performing. They were one of the highlights at both DelFest & the Northwest String Summit. Also performing will be Split Lip Rayfield. This band has been on my radar for a long time but I’m so excited to be able to see them perform live! There are also many bands performing that I have never heard of as well. This is always my favorite part of a festival. There is nothing better than discovering new bands.

Here is a link to the daily schedule for the festival:
