Lara Hope & The Ark-Tones frequently tour across the country and have spent time on the road with the Bryan Setzer Orchestra and others.

Singer/songwriter Ian Flanigan just released a new single called 'Broken Wings' from the Give Me Color EP which drops on September 6th. The track features three-time Grammy-winning engineer Justin Guip on drums with Jesse Murphy (Norah Jones) on bass, Andrew Borkowski on cello and Scot Milici on Hammond B3.

Murali Coryell is the son of jazz legend Larry Coryell and had carved out a blues legacy all his own.

The Bethel Woods celebration is not to be confused for the recent Woodstock 50 cancelation. Please note you must have your tickets to these events plus a travel voucher to enter the grounds.
