The first is this weekend, it is a fundraiser for the North Country Hardship Fund
This was started over 10 years ago to help folks in our area, ( Upstate NY, several counties.) It has helped families facing tragic events such as losing everything in a fire,.
Or having family members die or with injuries from an accident, or several other unforeseen tragic events...
It is called Waynestock, after it's founder.
It is in North Creek, NY and is totally FREE.... They raise funds with auctions of donated merch, including a HARLEY Motorcycle. The other event is NEXT weekend, starting on the 9th, it is also a long running event, almost 20 years now......
Was originally from this sight, and is well known among long term members....
JAMFEST is just a gathering of folks who love music
and would like to actually MEET some of the members and play some music with them.
It started as a one day thing, and grew to be the entire weekend to make it so anyone can stop by for a visit, grab a seat, either on stage, or in the audience,
Enjoy a cold beverage, and some pretty awesome food, and generally enjoy the visiting and meeting, and playing, all this is also free, you just have to get there.....
It is in Cornwall , VT, just a bit south of Middlebury....
Hope to have some NEW members and friends show up this year....and jam out either on stage, or around the campfire.....
