Scythian's Sunflower Fest

We wanted to remind our readers that in two weekends (October 10th) Scythian's Sunflower Fest will be held at Rocky Gap State Park - Cumberland, Maryland. The festival is a celebration of the the union between band member Joey Crosby and his fiancee Sara. Instead of having to painfully create an invite list for their wedding; everyone is invited. That includes you and me. They have scheduled an awesome lineup of musicians - many who have toured with the band in the past. We are talking about Holy Ghost Tent Revival, Blueground Undergrass, Albannach, and Rebecca Jean Smith. Our friends at Oneside are also scheduled, but if they can't make it, rumors persist that The Morning Pages or Boulder Acoustic Society may be replacements. We have written about most of these groups in past and for pure energy - there won't be a restful second during the day.

Tickets are $40 in advance; $45 at the gate. Best of all, children under 12 are free. My boy will finally gets to see these bands. Scythian has also arranged lodging - either through discounted rates at the Rocky Gap Resort and surrounding hotels or $25 for camping. We will see you there.
