Feast and Field Events Continue until October 12th

Many may associate the gatherings and market at Feast and Field with summertime, but the outdoor farmers' market events continue into October 12th.  Kids are back in school, and fall fruits are ripening, meaning more great offerings from the farmers at Feast and Field. If you haven't made it yet this year, it's not too late, and the music line up this fall is worth the trip, and worth bundling up for.

Thursday September 7: Ida Mae & Terrible Mountain: 

Ida Mae Specker and Lily Specker of Terrible Mountain

Ida Mae Specker is a 3rd generation fiddle player and a rising force in American folk and roots music. She and her sister Lila began performing with their family band The Speckers in 2005. The Speckers became renowned for “playing a rambunctious version of old-time music that owes as much to punk rock as Appalachia, at least in attitude.” (Seven Days VT). VPR’s Robert Resnik calls the Speckers “Vermont Folk Heroes.” 

Terrible Mountain is comprised of Ida Mae and Lila Specker on double fiddles and Josh Norman on guitar and percussion. Carrying on the legacy of their forefathers, the band pays homage to the past while continuously evolving their unique sound. At its core the group is built on a solid commitment to having fun and to family.
