Beacon Winterfest 2013 is the major fundraiser in support of Beacon Riverfest with all proceeds going to support this summer’s fourth annual event. Organized to brighten up the bleak, midwinter months, this first-ever concert in the Waterfall Room at The Roundhouse at Beacon Falls will take place Saturday, March 2, at 7 p.m. Winterfest 2013 will feature musical performances by Yarn, the Big Bright, and Antje Duvekot.
The headliners, Yarn, are jammy, Americana alt-country rockers led by singer/songwriter Blake Christiana.
The Big Bright, a new collaboration between Glenn Patscha and Fiona McBain of Americana stalwarts Ollabelle, and singer/songwriter Liz Tormes make their Hudson Valley debut with a selection of Brit-pop and vintage New Wave guilty pleasures in support of a new disc called I Slept Through the ’80s.
Antje Duvekot (pronounced aunt-yuh doo-va-kott), a Boston-based singer/songwriter, combines vocals with a poetic sensibility influenced by the likes of Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Paul Simon and Leonard Cohen.
The event is sponsored by Beacon Natural Market, The Roundhouse at Beacon Falls, Chronogram, WFUV-FM and the Beacon Music Factory.
Tickets are available at brownpapertickets.com and are $45 (with a limited number of VIP “Snow Angel” preferred seats available for $90).
