Spring is finally here – let’s celebrate! Our 2015 Peace & Love Spring Fest features headliners the Boo Hoo Ramblers and much more music, plus the usual food and drink, raffle prizes, vendors and more. It’s happening from 2:00 – 11:00 pm at your friendly neighborhood Land Trust. Suggested donation is $10 – kids and teens free! Please leave your critters at home.
Along with the usual meat/veggie burgers, dogs, sides, and drinks, we will have artists vending, a bake sale, raffle prizes, and face-painting. If you enjoy baking, we would love your donation of deliciousness . . . just drop it off at the bake sale table. Please include all ingredients on a small card along with your donation.
Our talented neighborhood kids will lead off the line-up, as always:
2:00 – 5:00 Local Establishment (8th graders), Fuisté (11th graders), and two bands featuring their parents, the Cindy Yosh Project and My Imaginary Band.
5:30 – 7:00 Tony Levitas & Friends – Singer and multi-instrumentalist Tony Levitas writes passionate songs about life, love, loss, yearning and hope. His work has been compared to Neil Young, The Clash, The Velvet Underground, Steely Dan, and John Mayer, though his main influences include the early British Invasion, Bob Dylan, Miles Davis, Bob Marley, Jim Morrison and Hank Williams. For the past many years, Tony has played in the classic rock and roll band The Helpers.
7:30 – 9:00 Chickens & Pigs – Atlanta’s own rockin’ stompin’ blues band features Jeff Evans on guitar/vocals and various other Chickens and Pigs, including bass, guitar, drums and often keyboards. With lyrics that are sometimes bizarre, sometimes strange, but always entertaining, Chickens and Pigs will take you on a journey of blues-rag, country-folk, Rolling Stones-type rockers, alt-country and groove-blues. Get ready to cluck your oink off!
9:00 – 9:30 The Sensua Players – Blending traditional & modern elements of West African tribal drumming, the Sensua Players perform with a passionate & spiritual intention.
9:30 – 11:00 The BooHoo Ramblers – The BooHoo Ramblers remain a roots-oriented group playing original and cover tunes that blend traditional, country, folk, rock, and bluegrass styles, a.k.a. rockin’ foot-stompin’ Americana. They are currently pursuing all opportunities to perform their unique and exciting sound in venues near and far.
Please be kind to our neighbors and do not park on side streets around the Land Trust. Walk, bike, skate, ride MARTA or carpool if you can. Event parking is available courtesy of Clifton Sanctuary, 369 Connecticut Ave. (NE, Atlanta 30307) just around the corner.
Cash is preferred, but we will take cards at the entrance only. Food and drinks are cash only. There is a money machine close by at the Candler Park Market.
Be green! Bring your own re-usable plate, cup and utensils and get a free raffle ticket!
