Hovander Homestead Bluegrass Festival

We just wanted to give a quick shout out to the team who put together the festival over labor day weekend! The awesome David Starr, Heather Carter and Daniel Tepper did a wonderful job getting the whole festival put together and organized. And we'll give a shout to their promoter and social media person Kjerstin Lie, as well (who actually does all of our writing and social media and booking) !

We had a great time and can't wait until next year!

Marcel's Bluegrass Night on KMRE

This month our buddy Scot at the Honeymoon Cider and Meads is helping us put together a wonderful show!

April Brew's Day in The Western Front

The attendees were entertained by the bluegrass duo Marcel and Nakos as they walked by the long rows of beer and cider venders. 

“I thought it was really great, of course people aren’t there for the music. They are there for the beer, you know,” Marcel Ardans, of Marcel and Nakos, said. 

Stones Throw Brewery, a new brewery, which opened up in downtown Fairhaven, was at the event for the second time, but this was their first time being able to serve alcohol. “We were here last year with ginger ale because…
