The Hop Bottom

Arts & Music Festival

Friday, July 18th and Saturday, July 19th


In 2007, The Hop Bottom Arts and Music Festival drew over 1,500 people to the historic Northeastern Pennsylvania mountain community. Attendees traveled far and wide to experience the festival's eclectic mix of top local artists and world class touring acts from around the globe. In addition to quality entertainment, the festival also featured regional artisans and notable food vendors providing culinary delights. Last year’s festival proved to be a great time for both families and music fans alike.

The 2008 Hop Bottom Arts and Music Festival kicks off Friday evening (July 18) at 4pm with "Barn Dance East," an acoustic jam hosted by Austin Texas' Leeann Atherton (www.fullmoonbarndance.com). Leeann is famous for her “Full Moon Barn Dance” gatherings held during Austin’s South By South West Music Festival and on every full moon in Austin. Leeann will be joined by her Russian counterpart Zhenya (Former Red Elvises guitarist/singer). “Barn Dance East,” as it is billed, will be full of surprises and is not to be missed.

Jammy award winner, national touring act and festival mainstay, The Breakfast (CT) (www.thebreakfast.net), cap off Friday nights entertainment.

National recording artist and Timmy Award winning singer, Danny Nova (NJ) (www.dannynova.com) will perform on Saturday night (July 19). Danny has been a supporting act for music legends such as Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Dave Mason (Traffic, Fleetwood Mac) and Nazareth, to name a few. The rest of Saturday’s musical performances are an eclectic mix of Bluegrass, Country, and Rock. Notable acts include Cabinet (PA), Marc Silver and the Stonethowers (PA)and Grammar Debate! (PA)

In addition to the fantastic music, the festival is proud to offer:

• Great food from local vendors

• The Hop Bottom Hose Company’s famous Chicken BBQ

• A Classic Car Cruise-In

• Arts, crafts, and jewelry vendors
