FEST: Shale Hill Music Fest @ Saugerties’ Shale Hill Farm on Saturday


The Shale Hill Music Fest in Saugerties isn’t really a full-blown festival, but rather a three-hour celebration starting at 12noon on Saturday (June 11). It’s loaded with family-friendly talent that includes some of the Woodstock area’s better-known names, including alt-pop singer-songwriter Tracy Bonham as the headliner, along with kindie queen Bari Koral, local rockers the Cameramen, Katie Hoffstater and Hudson’s Crew.

The setting for the fest is the Shale Hill Farm, and the proceeds will benefit Choices in Childbirth and the New York State Birth Center Association. Tickets are $20 in advance; $35 for two; and $25 at the gate; children under 12 admitted free.
