Future Fest preview: Tune in to local music!
In addition to the fun activities and nourishing food, Future Fest has evolved into a sort of miniature music festival. This year’s lineup showcases exciting local acts in a variety of genres. Don’t miss it!
Local country rock mainstay Douglas James will kick things off at 10am, to be followed by the thoughtful folk pop of Tara Adams and Dan Jackson. Aaron Garcia and band take the stage at noon, likely showcasing material from their brand new album, Glass Girl, which is available for preview at the band’s website. Guitar whiz Sammy Melchi will carry us into the afternoon, playing a set with Sydney Harrison and Shukrani Goodlow. And Nathan Moore (lead singer of The Blues Shed) will bring his unique of blues and soul from Kalamazoo, accompanied by Art DeMulder and Sammy Melchi. Last but not least, *cino’s own family band will wrap things up with a selection of covers and bluegrass classics.
