The Dawg is in the house! Innovative mandolin master David Grisman promises to ignite the evening with the east coast premiere of his new band the David Grisman FolkJazz Trio featuring Nashville guitarist Jim Hurst and upright bassist Samson Grisman.

Ollabelle, the soulfully unique bluegrass/gospel/country inspired quintet lauded by producer/musician T-Bone Burnett (and house band for the 2010 all star tribute to Simon & Garfunkel) will set you swaying and clapping.

Husky voiced indie songster James Maddock, rollicking country swing group The Sweetback Sisters, harmonic gospel/blues trio Brother Sun and alt roots string band Spuyten Duyvil take you on a tour of traditional music influences with contemporary flair.

Fun, free activities for kids! Delicious food and beverages for purchase (or bring your own)! Spread a blanket, have a picnic and spend the day exploring the majestic gardens and natural beauty of Caramoor while enjoying some truly inspiring music! Gate opens at 10:30am and music begins at 12:30pm.
