Tragically Hip tribute band headlining Aug. 19 event

The Fieldstone Music Festival returns with a bang, and a headlining act that is sure to please music lovers, especially fans of the Tragically Hip, from near and far.

The second annual event takes place on Saturday, Aug. 19 and promises to be a day of incredible music, community connection, amazing food, local artisans and children’s activities. 

The festival’s headliner is an rocking tribute band, The Strictly Hip, dedicated to carrying on the musical legacy of The Tragically Hip. From “New Orleans is Sinking” to “Nautical Disaster” to “Courage,” you can expect to hear all Yer Favourites from this amazing Buffalo, NY-based group.

In addition to The Strictly Hip, there is an exceptional lineup of talent this year, starting with Ursa and the Major Key – a fun indie/psychedelic jam band, followed by Los Blancos – a roots and blues band.

But there’s more: a new addition to the festival, Fieldstone Farmers’ and Artisans’ Market, will offer a wide array of local arts, crafts and culinary delights.  There’s something for everyone with plenty of children’s activities to ensure the Fieldstone Music Festival is an unforgettable experience for the entire family – including Pipsqueak the Clown, providing comedy, balloon art and facepainting.

“With music, food, arts and children’s entertainment – you can’t you miss this annual event supporting the Fieldstone Foundation and our local community,” said Amanda Tagliarino, Senior Director of the Fieldstone Foundation. “The Fieldstone Music Festival is an annual fundraising event supporting the Fieldstone Foundation and its commitment to meeting urgent community needs – in particular, addressing food, housing and financial insecurity experienced within our region.”

“With the funds raised from last year’s Festival, we were able to provide support to local families experiencing an urgent financial hardship for which no other funding source was available,” said Ms. Tagliarino.  “More of our community members are experiencing food, financial and housing insecurity than we’ve seen in quite some time – together, we can help!”

Tickets are $15 in advance and $18 at the door.  Gates will open at 1 p.m. with music starting at 1:30 p.m. Save the date for the 2nd annual Fieldstone Music Festival on Saturday, Aug, 19.  You can find more information and purchase tickets by clicking here
