HASTINGS-ON-HUDSON, N.Y. -- Singer-songwriter Simone Felice will headline at the ninth annual Take Me to the River music and arts festival Saturday, Sept. 10, in Hastings-on-Hudson.
There will be local, regional and national acts and activities for kids.
Among the performers will be Simone Felice, founding member of The Felice Brothers, whose early albums were among the most influential works of this century's indie-folk revival, said a release.
“Dylan and Leonard Cohen are brought to mind, such is the depth of emotion wrought by Felice’s careful approach. … Shows the power of music to lift your spirits and make your heart full – absolutely fantastic," according to BBC, the release said.
Performers include, from Nashville, Vandaveer with folk and pop music ballads; Holy Ghost Tent Revival, a soul-rock horn band; and musical storyteller Nozart; plus many more bands.
New for 2016 is a special jazz brunch hour pairing local Grammy-nominated jazz saxophonist Tim Armacost and local star saxophonist Gary Smulyan with farm-fresh food offerings and a free mimosa (21 and older).
Doors open at 12:30 p.m. Tickets are $20 in advance; $25 at the door; $15 for seniors and students with ID; and free for kids 10 and younger.
