Slanted View Productions and RAQ are excited to announce Lew-Au II, a two-day camping and music event in Newport, VT on July 21 and July 22. RAQ, the energetic quartet from Burlington, VT, will deliver at least five sets of its high performance music throughout the weekend and headline the event for the second time. Other acts that have signed on include Strangefolk, Al & The Transamericans, Jaik Miller Band and The Brew. More bands TBA.
The first Lew-Au took place in New Woodstock, NY where over 600 fans flocked to experience multiple sets from RAQ, Jazz Mandolin Project, and DJ Logic. This year the festival will make its debut in RAQ's home state of Vermont where they hope to find a home for the event and make it an easy drive from anywhere in the northeast region. Guitarist, Chris Michetti, says, "It was important for us to have this in Vermont. We feel as though we represent it. We owe a lot to this state. This band grew up here together. We were conceived here. This is the most important gig of the year for us, possibly in our career and having it in Vermont just feels right."
