For the past 7 years Winding Trails has been the home of the Farmington Valley Acoustic Festival highlighting national and local acts on the colorful grounds along Dunning Lake each fall. This year’s festival will feature Fireside Collective, a progressive bluegrass quintet from Asheville, NC. This group has toured throughout the United States and won numerous awards for their debut album. Other performers include Boston based Twisted Pine, one of the most acclaimed young string bands in the Northeast coming off the release of their album Right Now. Joining these groups on the main stage will be Mari Black, a multi style violinist and champion fiddler. Mari has won national and international accolades in many styles of music. She has delighted audiences with her energetic playing and sparkling stage presence. She will also be teaching a fiddle workshop from 11am to noon. Preregistration is required and includes your ticket to the festival. Other local talented musicians will round out the bill.
Our boathouse stage will feature some of Connecticut’s Best Upcoming Young performers. Come and support tomorrow’s superstars as they get a chance to play on the shores of Dunning Lake in front of family and friends.
