There is nothing better than foot stomping music to put you back to simpler times when friends gathered to enjoy conversation, good food and companionship. The musical groups performing at this year’s Village Peddler Festival held at Lake Metroparks Farmpark in Kirtland on Saturday, September 17th and Sunday, September 18th will do just that, take you back in time and entice you to slow down and enjoy the quaint outdoor marketplace atmosphere.
A festival favorite, listen to the sounds of accomplished folk guitarist and vocalist Bev Newbold both Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm and then returning Saturday from 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm and Sunday 4:00 pm- 5:00 pm.
Continuing the yesteryear festival theme, old time and traditional music will be played from 12:00 pm-4:00 pm daily by The Silver String Band. The Silver String Band, established in 1982, has been playing Bluegrass music at the festival for several years. A crowd favorite, these talented musicians share upbeat acoustic western swing style tunes with banjo, harmonica, guitar, bass and fabulous vocals.
