MILES OVER MOUNTAINS –

will be on the bandstand at Harvest Fest at 1:00!

Miles Over Mountains, MOM, is a progressive bluegrass band based in McHenry, IL. Their live shows are high energy, centered around an arsenal of original material and refreshing variety of cover songs served up in their own unique style. Touring through their fifth year, Miles Over Mountains continues to turn heads across the nation as their momentum, fanbase and schedule continue to grow.

Since their inception in early 2014, they’ve performed hundreds of shows at bars, clubs, and music festivals, with no signs of slowing down.

LAURA CORTESE & THE DANCE CARDS –

will be on the bandstand at Harvest Fest at 3:00 pm!

Laura Cortese is an instigator of creativity and a builder of community wherever she goes. She wears many hats: fiddler, singer, songwriter multi-instrumentalist and bandleader. After wending her way from California to Boston, founding a music camp and a festival, and playing and singing with scores of artists, she assembled the Dance Cards: a quartet of singing string players.

Their original music is based in the lyrical rituals of folk while exploring new territories of rhythm and sonics.

At first glance, the band may resemble a string quartet – there are no guitars to be found. But from the moment Cortese kicks off the title track of her album CALIFORNIA CALLING with angular, percussive strumming and a powerfully sultry vocal, it’s clear that this is something else. This is post-folk that seriously rocks.

HENHOUSE PROWLERS –

will be on the bandstand at Harvest Fest at 4:30 pm!

Founded over 13 years ago with the simple desire to play original and powerful bluegrass, this quartet now finds themselves at the intersection of performance, diplomacy and education.

The Prowlers have now been to more than 25 countries across the globe, working with the U.S. State Department and under their own nonprofit, Bluegrass Ambassadors – incorporating music from Africa, Asia, the Middle East and more into their already robust repertoire of unique traditional American music.

On stage, in workshops and wherever they are, the Henhouse Prowlers find and spread the commonality we share as human beings through the universal language of music.
