The fifth annual Rock, Rattle & Drum American Indian Pow Wow and Spirit on the Mountain Music Festival comes to Stephentown this weekend.

If you don’t know Gardner’s Ice Cream and Coffee Shoppe, you might think it an odd place for a music fest, but there at the corner of Routes 22 & 43 in Stephentown, you’ll find 600 beautiful acres of festival space.

You’ll also find some great music – including Grammy Award-winners Joanne Shenandoah and flutist Joseph FireCrow. Rock, Rattle & Drum’s special guest of honor and co-emcee is Golden Globe Award-winning actress and singer Irene Bedard, is best known for her film roles in “Smoke Signals” and “Lakota Woman,” as well as the voice of Disney’s “Pocahontas.”
