Sat 9/22 @ 11AM-11PM
Music on the Porches, now in its ninth year, takes over practically the whole town of Peninsula in the Cuyahoga Valley. And we do mean the whole town. Witness Terry Lumber & Supply, a train depot, art galleries and the historic G.A.R. Hall transformed into music venues, primarily for folk and bluegrass artists.
Performers on the bill include the J.D. Sanders Jazz Band, Box of Squirrels, the Rhondabouts, Flute Candy, Rachel Brown (of Rachel & the Beatnik Playboys), Deano & Murph, the mother-daughter duo of Becky Boyd and Claudia Miller, and more.
There are also workshops to help aspiring and current musicians practice up on their mandolin and their fiddling (addressing, in particular, how to adapt your violin chops to cross-platform musical genres).
As in past years, a kickoff party-show takes place on Friday @ 8pm, this time with the Austin-based Page Turners, graduates of Boston’s Berklee School of Music, in the G.A.R. Hall. This is a ticketed event, with admission available online at peninsulahistory.org. Otherwise the majority of Music on the Porches is free.
