New Ulster County Music Festival Unveils Line-Up for September
Meadowlark Festival is a new musical festival set to launch to the public this September 8th through the 10th in the Hudson Valley. They have just revealed the inaugural lineup, blending some of the most storied names in Americana, indie rock, and experimental music with a roster of local and emerging artists. The festival is presented by Modrocker Productions.
The Conception of the Meadowlark Festival
Meadowlark 2022 was an invitation-only two day performance that took place last August in the Stone Ridge Orchard's meadows. The festival was born out of a close-knit network of local and traveling musicians. Special featured performances included Mississippi bluesman RL Boyce and NYC singer/songwriter Jeffrey Lewis, among others. For 2023, Meadowlark Festival will be open to the public for the first time. Besides the music, the festival will include local artisans, food trucks, and more!
About the Venue: Stone Ridge Orchard
The venue, Stone Ridge Orchard & Farmers Market, is a 200-year-old working farm on 115 acres and will showcase artists within a secluded and intimate setting. Less than two hours north of New York City, Stone Ridge Orchard and Farmers Market in the scenic Roundout Valley is situated between the Shawangunk Ridge and the Catskill mountain range in the Hudson Valley region.
Meadowlark 2023 Comes to the Hudson Valley in September
Meadowlark producer and Modrocker Productions, LLC founder Daniel Leslie, who hails from Hopewell Junction, graduated from Vassar College, and now resides in Brooklyn, describes its inspiration:
“This grew out of a vision shared with some of my musician friends about blending traditional and experimental music in a special, secluded setting,” he said. “The Hudson Valley is such an epicenter of music culture, it’s the perfect setting for this type of experience we wanted to create that blends traditional music with an edgier counterculture vibe.”
