1) Peace of Mind Fest 5 at Camp Muckleratz (Elizabethville)
So the stars of the Peace of Mind Fest 5 have to be Mr. Lahey & Randy of Trailer Park Boys (read my interview with Canadian actor John Dunsworth), but music is definitely not an afterthought at the festival today. Some of the standouts include the psychedelic funk sounds of The Big Dirty, progressive jamgrass from Still Hand String Band and improvisational jazz from Arjun. However, my favorite has to be the heavy Virginia-based psych rockers People’s Blues of Richmond. They played at the Chameleon Club a few years ago and floored me with their performance. People’s Blues of Richmond play at 11:15 p.m. Tickets are $75 at the gate.
2) Zac Brown Band at Hersheypark Stadium (Hershey)
Zac Brown Band’s most recent album, Jekyll + Hyde, sold more than 228,000 copies. That can be attributed directly to their mashup of country and rock sounds. Zac and the crew return to Hershey after headlining the stadium last year during the Southern Ground Music and Food Festival last year. Gregg Allman opens the show at 7 p.m. Tickets range between $30.10-$75.
3) Brahmii Lagrutta at Burning Bridge Tavern (Wrightsville)
Innovative in her musical stylings, York’s Brahmii Lagrutta brings a lot to the table. She’s a singer as well as a cellist. While she clearly has classical influences, she’s innovative and modern enough to hold the attention of audiences everywhere. The show starts at 8 p.m. and is free.
