Peace of Mind Festival Review

Sept 3-6, 2015, Elizabethville, PA

A wise man once sang the phrase “summer is coming in, and it’s going out of style”.   With fall right around the corner it begins to take on more meaning.  After a long summer of fun, what events will you choose to close out the festival season?  There is no shortage of options but one particular gathering deserves a top position on your list.

Peace of Mind Fest is very proud to be holding their 5th annual celebration this coming Labor Day Weekend, September 3rd-6th near Elizabethville, Pa.  Located on a campground in Weiser State Forrest, attendees will enjoy more than 24 bands, food and craft vendors, workshops, kids activities and more!  The folks over at NumbaNyne Productions strive to bring you something special.  Peace of Mind Fest provides some of the finest music, camping, and community love that one can find.

Every year is a little bit different but some things can feel or sound quite familiar.  Ronnie Penque (New Riders of the Purple Sage), Steal Your Face, and Willie Jack and the Northern Lights have performed every year so far.  Consider the Source and Still Hand Stringband have also become annual entertainment.  This year, returning for his second appearance at Peace of Mind Fest, John Dunsworth of Trailer Park Boys fame will transform into “Mr. Lahey” for a live comedy show.  His set last year was quite memorable and by the end of it, bestowed Peace of Mind attendees with the new collective name, Muckle Ratz.  Having been blown away with the festival scene “Mr. Lahey” had so much fun that this year he decided to bring his co-star and side kick Pat Roach’s lovable but greasy character “Randy”!  Rarely sighted in our part of the world, their headlining performance will be worth the price of admission alone.  Other musical acts include The Big Dirty, Juggling Suns Project, People’s Blues of Richmond, Out of Beardspace, Mystery Fyre, The Backwoods Experiment, Appalachian Gypsy Tribe, The Meadow Men, and Mixing Numbers With Sounds and many more!

Music connoisseurs tend to stick together.  The best events are hosted by music lovers, and designed for music lovers.  This festival’s success is the result of hard work, dedication, and a love for making people smile.  You should spend your last weekend of summer relaxing in a place that feels like home; maybe a place where you can find some real peace of mind.
