Join us Sunday, September 11th, 12- ­6pm at Skyline Farm when some of the Henryfest Artistsfinest string band virtuosos from the region and beyond come together for HenryFest ­ a one-­day celebration of acoustic music traditions.

HenryFest, now in its 12th year, takes place on a gently sloping hillside at Skyline Farm in North Yarmouth, Maine. In addition to the great musical line­up, this popular festival provides an enticing selection of local foods, microbrews, and activities for children.

This year’s Music Masters include:

  • Red-­Eyed Fox (Old-­Time) with guest percussionist Ahmad Hassan Muhammad 1:00-1:45pm
  • Kelly Muse & Susie Pepper (Jazz/Pop) 2:00-2:45
  • Joe Walsh & Grant Gordy (Bluegrass) 3:00-3:45
  • Choro Louco (Brazilian Choro) 4:00-4:45
  • John Reischman & The Jaybirds (Bluegrass) 5:00-6:00

“The string’s the thing at this year’s HenryFest,” said Chris Moore, 317 Main’s Director of Music Education. “For fans of acoustic music, it’s a not­-to-­be­-missed event ­ old-­time,  folk and country, traditional and progressive bluegrass, Brazilian Choro ­ plus, you never know which surprise guests might pop up in the middle of a set to send the fun into overdrive.”

The relaxed, outdoor atmosphere is a natural playground for kids. They are free to dance, play, try on costumes, have their faces painted, try out English Country Dancing, and sample instruments in our instrument discovery tent, while adults enjoy the live music nearby.

This year’s food and drink options include Moe’s Original BBQ, Locally Sauced Burritos, Sugarbird Coffee Truck, Gorgeous Gelato, The Squeeze, (hot dogs, sausage, fresh lemonade) Maine Beer Company, and the 317 Pie Tent – a longstanding HenryFest tradition featuring a selection of homemade pies baked by volunteers.

“It’s all about bringing your blanket, taking in some sunshine and fresh air, letting your kids run around, and enjoying some really great music,” said John Williams, Executive Director of 317 Main and HenryFest founder.

Tickets are $20 at the gate for individuals, $40 for families. Advance tickets are $18 / $35 available online or at 317 Main in Yarmouth at 207-­846-­9559.

In the event of a downpour, the festival will take place at First Parish Congregational Church, 116 Main Street in Yarmouth.
