After her stunning performance with Ani DiFranco last year, her return was simply a must. Ferrick is a music icon with a voice that's instantly familiar and comfortable. Her impressive career longevity as a predominantly independent artist is virtually unheard of and speaks to her talent and the world she has built for herself. There is her expansive body of work, mapped out over the sixteen albums that comprise her carrer to date. Her most recent studio release, Still Right Here, serves as a definitive reminder that she is back and better than ever. Simply put, her music will inspire with a voice burnished by breakdowns and breakthroughs, refined over twenty years.
Having just won the East Coast Music Awards Recording of the Year Award, this Francophone trip is ready to take Prescott Park by storm.

Hailing from Prince Edward Island, Vishten is comprised of twin sisters Emmanuelle andPastelle LeBlanc join musical forces with Pascal Miousse, and form a sophisticated sonic signature combining tight sibling harmonies, layered foot percussion, viruoso acoustic and electric instrumentation.
The Defibulators have emerged as one of the most engaging live acts from the thriving roots scene in Brooklyn, NY; melding bluegrass, rockabilly, classic country, and punk, into their own eclectic indie honky-tonk sound. This band jump-start new life into vintage country music and deliver a unique sound that's anything but old-timey. Their sonic buckshot is a mix of sawing fiddle, fat telecaster twang, howling harmonica, a driving rhythm section of upright bass, drums, and washboard, heavy vocal harmonies, and surreal lyrics that spin big-rig tales of deception, debauchery, depleted bank accounts, domestic dilemmas, fanaticism, vintage firearms, biological anomalies, airline intoxication, and animal ennui.

A furious picker and relentless strummer with a knack of turning the body of his acoustic guitar into a glorified hand-drum, Walker is the real deal," (Spotlight Magazine).If you haven't checked him out yet, make it a point to do so as part of the PPAF Showcase Fest.
