Great Blue Heron Delivers Family-Friendly, Festy Fun on the Fourth

Donna the Buffalo by Jim Gavenus

Whether you are looking for a festival where you can party all day and night or want to bring your little ones and know that they are going to experience an enriching musical, artistic, and communal atmosphere (with plenty of space and respect given from partiers), the Great Blue Heron is here to deliver!

For the twenty-third time, the Great Blue Heron Music Festival will bring to Sherman, NY the sounds of Americana-jam favorites Donna the Buffalo and a smorgasbord of great grassroots, traditional, and Americana acts. From the passionate bluegrass-folk licks of Binghamton’s Driftwood, to the feel-good, deep reggae groove of Mosaic Foundation, to the periodically psychedelic folk/Americana of The Horse Flies, to mystical instrumentation by East Indian master Naryan Padmanabha…your ears will have a feast. If that’s not enough, they also have a nice little swimming pond which does wonders in the Fourth of July heat and other fun acts like fire-spinning. So come to Sherman, NY on the Fourth of July weekend (July 4-6), and bring your friends and family to the best little festival Western New York has to offer.

Check out the schedule below for the times each band will play, and if you haven’t picked up your ticket yet, you can grab it here.
