10 DAYS UNTIL SAUNDERSFEST!

Countdown to SAUNDERSFEST!

Watch LIVE on the Caroga Arts YouTube & Facebook Page

Praised by Alison Krauss, Tennessee-bred virtuoso mandolinist Sierra Hull made her first national appearance at the young age of 10 and made a surprise appearance at CLMF’s Caroga Chapel concert in 2019. The singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist will make her first appearance at SAUNDERSFEST this year. 

From Rochester, NY, The Crooked North is an acoustic band inspired by the energy of progressive bluegrass, the gritty soul of Americana, and the Rust Belt ethos of their Western New York home. The Crooked North made their appearance at Caroga Lake Music Festival at SAUNDERSFEST 2018.

Guitarist and pianist Amos Rose rocked the show at last year’s SAUNDERSFEST as a member of Mama Juke, a New Orleans influenced blues, blue-eyed soul, funk, and folk band. 

A local favorite, the Saunders Family Band from Canada Lake will be joined by fellow musical friends for a classic SAUNDERSFEST celebration! The multi-instrumentalist family band include Luann, Clark, Robert, Geoff, and Richard Saunders.

*The duo O’Connor Lee, who were originally scheduled for this event, is unfortunately unable to perform. We are grateful to The Crooked North who have stepped in to perform
