The Beacon Music Factory once again presents the Beacon Riverfest, a riverside festival of activities and food with an especially fine and diverse lineup of musical performers. This year is heavy both on the regional indie/pop (Kingston’s Shana Falana, New Paltz’s Breakfast in Fur and What Moon Things) as well as on multi-genre songwriters and dynamic performers such as Tracy Bonham and Simi Stone. The Riverfest has generally featured a large helping of genuinely hip worldbeat and global fusion acts, and this year is no different: The bill includes the Sierra Leone Refugee Allstars, Gato Loco and the M. Shanghai String Band, among others.
The Beacon Riverfest goes down on Sunday, June 28 from 12 noon to 8 p.m. at Riverfront Park in Beacon. Admission costs $15 in advance, $25 at the event. For advance tickets, full lineup and food information, visit www.beaconriverfest.org.
