Pack your lawn chairs and come out to the Great Lawn of Harmony Hall, Jacob Sloat House (1848), 15 Liberty Rock Road, Sloatsburg for the fifth annual Highlands Bluegrass and Crafts Festival on Sunday, September 7 from 1-6 p.m.

Renowned fiddler Sue Cunningham and her band bring bluegrass back to the Ramapo Highlands. Joining the festival this year are The Ebony Hillbillies, a black string band that incorporates bits of jazz and other flavors into an old-time twang. This free festival focuses on one of America’s most popular musical art forms and features the talents and goods of local artisans that cover a gamut of finely crafted treasures.

“We are looking forward to the wonderful range of music at this year’s Highlands Bluegrass Festival, especially with the Ebony Hillbillies’ entertaining string band roots music grooves,” said Geoff Welch, curator of Harmony Hall and festival stage emcee.

The fifth annual Highlands Bluegrass and Crafts Festival is presented by the Town of Ramapo and the Friends of Harmony Hall, Jacob Sloat House and is a Hudson River Valley Ramble event. Harmony Hall, on the National Register of Historic Places, is within walking distance from MTA/NJ Transit Train.
