Peace & Love Harvest Fest, Oct. 12

The Harvest Is In – Time to Celebrate!

Saturday, Oct. 12, 3:00-11:00 pm, $10.00 suggested donation

Come and celebrate, dance, eat, commune with your neighbors while raising FUNds for our beautiful oasis in the city! We have a great line-up of music, art, food and beverages to keep you entertained and happy – rain or shine. We’ll be raffling off the usual collection of wonderful prizes donated by local businesses. The playground will be open, with a fresh load of sand, and the entire Land Trust is yours to wander.

Our musical line-up is particularly great this time. Read on!

3:30-4:30 pm: The Johnson Party. This seven-piece Atlanta group plays primarily original songs, along with well-known reggae, rock, bluegrass, pop and Grateful Dead covers that groove-seekers, hipsters and families all seem to enjoy. The band’s sound has been called “unapologetic bohemian wanderlust anthems that sound like they were spawned around a giant bonfire – backed by grooving guitars and a sing-along chorus.” Their first CD is currently out on Wilderness Records. They are working on their second and have cut tracks with producer Tom Tapley (Springsteen, Sugarland, Indigo Girls).

5:00-6:00: The Radio Ramblers. This ten-year-old orchestration performs a blend of blues, rock and traditional Americana music. Founding members Alton Leonard and Michael Ellis are joined by Gayle Thompson, Bob Visentin and Don Whitaker. They are long-time musical supporters of the Land Trust who have graced our stage many times.

6:30-7:30: Grinder Nova and His Pitstop Mariachi Band. Using their unique blend of salsa and bossa with a pinch of ‘60s freakbeat, this fusion-verde of brass-laden rock and roll may cause bailando en fiercondo to any personas wthin earshot. They have been described as “James Bond meets Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass in a back-alley brawl against mainstream commercial radio.”

8:00-9:00: Doug Morton and the Fam Damily. Singer/songwriter/guitarist Doug Morton leads a group of seasoned Atlanta musicians playing a mix of rock, folk and Americana with a Southern and Western flavor. Joining Doug will be John Marsh (keyboards), Kate Moore (rhythm guitar), Phil Anderson (bass), Shelley Murphy (drums and percussion), and Trenton Sicola (drums and percussion).

9:30-11:00: Delta Moon. The dual slide guitars of Delta Moon carry listeners deep into the heart of the American South, where sinuous Mississippi blues meets the gritty backwoods twang of Appalachia and winds around a rock-steady beat like kudzu on a barbed wire fence. Net Rhythms calls it “Music as it should be – raw and honest.” We call it Blues-Infused American Roots.

The menu includes the usual meat and veggie dogs and burgers, sides, drinks, and surprises. And of course our neighborhood bakers will be providing goodies for the traditional Bake Sale. Bring your own washable plate, cup, and utensils, and get a free raffle ticket!

As always, please DO NOT PARK ON SIDE STREETS around the Land Trust. Event parking is available at Clifton Sanctuary – just follow the signs.  Please respect our neighbors.  Walking, biking, car-pooling, and riding MARTA are recommended. This is an all-ages event, but leave your critters at home.

The 2013 Peace & Love Harvest Fest needs YOU!

Remember the First Law of FUN: You’ll have more if you get involved and help make it happen!

As always, volunteers are needed to fill a variety of two-hour timeslots throughout the day.

We need raffle prizes.

We need donations of baked goods for the Bake Sale.

Vendors are welcome to vend for the suggested donation plus whatever extra they feel is justified by sales.
