Dreams and Bones is an acoustic quartet that formed in the fall of 2009. Their songs are a mix of original Americana compositions, classic folk tunes, and acoustic rock from the past four decades. Their unique blend of instrumental arrangements and vocal harmonies are both tasteful and powerful.
Next up will be Poor Folk, with members Chris Rattie, Junior Tutwiler and Corry Drake from the nationally touring band Rustlanders. This all-star lineup will bring a unique blend of old country, rock and Americana music to the stage.
The festival will then draw to a rocking close with SkyTop Blues, a 5-piece blues band from Central PA. The band plays a diverse mix of electric blues from artists like the Allman Brothers Band, Jimi Hendrix, and Stevie Ray Vaughan.
Listen to some music from all three bands below.
As this is a fundraiser for Shaver’s Creek, the event is rain or shine, and there will be no refunds. The funds raised at last year’s Music Fest helped the Creek build the timber-frame stage, completed in March, that will host this year’s musical acts. This year’s proceeds, including a percentage of all food vendor sales, will help to improve the stage, including the addition of stage lights and backstage roof.
Tickets for the festival are on sale now, and cost $10 for adults, $5 for students from grade school to grad school, and $5 for seniors 65 and over. Children 6 and under are free. To pre-order tickets call Shaver’s Creek at 814-863-2000, or stop by the Creek seven days a week, 10 a.m.–5 p.m. You can also purchase tickets at Appalachian Outdoors in State College or Standing Stone Coffee Company in Huntingdon.
