Vinegrass, a non-profit music production, founded by Monica Rizzio in 2013, is pleased to announce the line-up and details for the 8th annual Vinegrass Music Festival at the Truro Vineyards on Sunday October 2nd. The proceeds help fund the Vinegrass Music Scholarship program, purchase instruments for schools, and provide music industry related grants on Cape Cod.
The festival will feature (4) Americana genre nationally touring bands, Golden Oak from Maine, Rachel Baiman from Nashville, Driftwood from New York, and headliner Sicard Hollow from Nashville. The eclectic mix of roots music will showcase innovative songwriting, musicians who have mastered their craft in fiddle, mandolin, guitar, and a joyous audience that appreciates & dances to original music!
Golden Oak: GoldenOak’s music is rooted in the natural landscape- their songs move like a stream, meandering and weaving in an original yet grounding direction. Fronted by siblings Zak and Lena Kendall GoldenOak’s music calmly excites its listeners while nestled in rich folk-influenced sibling harmony. The Maine-based band has built a steady and growing fan base with this kind of energetic intimacy.
Rachel Baiman: With her 2017 debut Shame, Americana songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Rachel Baiman emerged as a fearless voice of the American female experience. (Link to full bio)
Driftwood: Anyone familiar with the Americana music scene knows this Upstate, New York-based band has cut their teeth on a killer live show. With a never-ending tour schedule and a steady buzz, they have built a very solid underground fan base. “The game has been live shows and nose to the ground since the beginning,”
Sicard Hollow: Sicard Hollow is a four-piece progressive bluegrass band who formed with a mutual passion for pushing the boundaries of genre. Heavily influenced by the Grateful Dead and New Grass Revival, these young pickers bring new energy to a timeless style with a combination of fearless improvisation and instrumental prowess.
