This year’s official poster features three musicians from last year’s Festival, Andrew Vogt on bass, Sarah Marie Young singing vocals, and Makaya McCraven on drums. They will be back this year as well as so many other great talents who generously help us raise money for hunger release.

Take a look. Plan to attend and support the cause. See you soon!
