Art & Music Festival - Saturday, August 27, 2016 

Celebrate the end of summer with us in a central New York village pretty enough to be on your calendar.  Plan to make the trip to Clinton, New York on Saturday, August 27, 2016 for a full day of exceptional live music, impressive artist wares and demonstrations, kids' activities, and a wide variety of interesting and healthy food selections.  The Clinton Art & Music Festival offers one of the most impressive and varied musical line-ups of any Upstate music festival, featuring over 20 musical acts -- from solo acoustic to 10-piece swing, Gypsy to Gospel, Irish to Oompah, jazz to Americana.  Stages feature notable guests from all over the Northeast -- and its all FREE!  But there's so much more....  musical petting zoo, art tent, and clay activities.  Everything gets underway mid-morning and goes on until dusk.  Join several thousand of your closest friends for a day that you will remember long after summer fades.

Band Sponsors
Big Vee Productions

Children's Tent Sponsors
The Carmen Caramanica Jazz Trio features the astonishing Carmen Caramanica on guitar, Rick Compton on drums, and Cos Castellano on bass.  For more than 30 years these guys have captivated local jazz audiences with their full-throttle, one-of-a-kind sound.
The Val Kinzler Band - Val Kinzler grew up in Queens, NY, the only girl in a family of four boys. Since the age of 15, she has explored every imaginable music scene, from punk, hard rock, metal, spoken word, glam, blues, and soul.  She's fronted the bands, ICU, Blue Lagoon, Technical Virgins, Validation, and been mentored by Sid Bernstein, Dr. John, Popa Chubby. Larry Russell, and Genya Raven. Throughout her life, Val has taught music and created special events involving women in music.
Soulshine - acoustic pop duo
Jay Schnitt - Singer-songwriter at Musician and Art Preparator at Wellin Museum of Art at Hamilton College
Semi-finalist on NBC’s The Voice – Ryan Quinn
The Rattlin’ Bog is best known for a rousing Irish repertoire, showcasing rich harmonies, adept instrumentation, and quick humor, and highlighting a delightful range of musical styles from tunes of Celtic origin, to folk songs, to old time Gospel.
Darryl Rahn has a lot to say. At just 21, he has released 2 LP's, 2 EP's, 4 singles, and has toured extensively along the eastern US. Born and raised in Utica, NY, he fell in love with the craft of songwriting after buying The Avett Brothers' Second Gleam EP on a whim. Ever since, he has been churning out insightful folk tunes and doing everything he can to get them heard. His distinct tenor voice, narrative-rich lyrics, and virtuosic guitar lines have earned him spots on the same bill as national acts such as Guster, Wild Child, and Larry Burnett. He is currently on tour to support his latest EP, Waiting For The Clouds. 
Puttin' On the Ritz is a risk-taking 9-piece band, led by the fabulous vocals of Ann Carey and Mark Sisti, playing everything danceable from Benny Goodman to Steely Dan, Lena Horne to Bonnie Raitt, Ray Charles to Rickie Lee Jones, Motown to Kalamazoo.  For over three decades this band has had enough fun on stage to start the party off before anyone else arrives, but then happily spreads their weird brand of fun like a contagion.
Plainfellow - Through many years of performing in various bands and acoustic projects, it's not a surprise that local musicians Aaron Cidzik (guitar/vocals) and Mike Hartnett (guitar/vocals) have joined forces to form the acoustic power duo known as Plainfellow.
The Mark Bolos Band - Contemporary Christian/Remix of Popular Rock songs
Vada March - Vada March is a versatile singer-songwriter from a small town in Upstate New York. Throughout the years, she has performed (both solo and in full bands) in many venues for crowds of all ages, as well as competed in numerous singing/talent competitions around NY.
Lorijo Manley's songs are jettisoned by her unequivocal status as a premier American guitarist. NY’s OutWords magazine started that buzz: "She makes magic through her music... channeling Jimi Hendrix through her fingers... spectacular." When asked about the recurrent Hendrix comparisons, she gives a humble shrug and says, “It’s the kinetic relationship we share with the guitar in live performance.“

 


Vocalist Ronnie Leigh has been impressing audiences for years from Syracuse to Seattle, and from New York City to Istanbul.  This five-time SAMMY (Syracuse Area Music Award) winner has shared the stage with Pat Metheny, The Yellowjackets, David Benoit, Special EFX, Spyro Gyra, David Sanborn, Tom Scott, Etta Jones and Jon Hendricks, as well as the Syracuse Symphony Orchestra.  Though primarily a jazz interpreter, he also fronts his own band, Prime Time Funk.
Kappa is a local progressive jazz featuring Scottie Madonia, Harry Lumb, Richard Bostick, and Joe Karwacki. 
Rocky Graziano - Upstate NY based singer/songwriter, guitarist/bassist and independent film actor.
Cosby Gibson and Tom Staudle are songwriters and singers, and have been performing for seven years in hundreds of events. Together they play acoustic and blues-style originals and favorites with a variety of instruments such as guitar, violin, banjo, harmonica, and ukelele.
Playing everything from modern-style polka to country to rock and even blues, Fritz’s Polka Band performs an eclectic mix of musical styles! Fritz's Polka Band is NOT an oompa pa band or the stereotypical "polka" band. In fact, FPB is known for breaking the stereotype regarding "polka" music. In 2010, FPB was inducted into the Syracuse Area Music Hall of Fame!
FOUNDATIONS is an 8-piece Southern gospel band from Syracuse that reminds us where real "soul" music started out.
Elevator – classic 60’s and 70’s rock
Carobh Dugan - Traditional Irish music ensemble
Chert and the Artifacts - a band of academics and musical enthusiasts who play because they love music.

 


Adi Shakti Bellydance Troupe - a Fusion of World Dance and American Tribal Style Bellydance

Nick Piccininni and Jay Barady - As an acoustic duo, the sky is the limit for Nick & Jay. Covering everything including old fiddle tunes, bluegrass, classic rock, country, jazz and artists such as Mumford & Sons, Keith Urban, Michael Jackson, John Denver, Jimmy Cliff, Pure Prairie League and countless others, there is always something for everyone.  

Whether they're at festivals, bars, restaurants or the porch of an Inn, this duo always brings the dynamics and power of a full band. Always listening to what the other is playing, the same songs take on new life every time. Anyone who has seen these two play can tell you why it works and the reason is simple...

Described as 5 jazz hepcats trapped in the body of a bluegrass band, the Dharma Bums String Band truly believes “it don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing”. 

 


 


Becca and the Tall Boys are a groove-intensive, acoustic celebration of all things rock, blues, Motown and country: signature takes on beloved classics, and soul-stirring originals. Brian Shafer on acoustic guitar, and Todd Russell on percussion provide a funky musical jungle gym that vocalist Becca Frame can have fun swinging around in.
