Event Details:

A day of free outdoor concerts with games and fun for all ages! Featuring performances from children’s music sensation Robbie Schaefer (of Eddie From Ohio), footstomping bluegrass fusion group Margot Leverett and the Klezmer Mountain Boys and biblical bubblegum pop duo Stereo Sinai.

Children’s music sensation Robbie Schaefer, formerly of the hit indie-folk band Eddie From Ohio, creates kids music that delights the entire family. Until 2012 he was the musical director and a host for SiriusXM’s Kids Place Live.

Margot Leverett and the Klezmer Mountain Boys combines Appalachian and southern fiddle tunes with klezmer melodies from pre-war Russia and Eastern Europe. Leverett is a founding member of The Klezmatics.

Stereo Sinai’s unique combination of ancient, holy tongues with blasphemous backbeats and synthesized pop melodies deftly brings the old world into the new.  If Gwen Stefani and Will.i.am had been on the mountain with Moses, they would have come down sounding a lot like Stereo Sinai.
