The roots rock band Eastbound Jesus and Guthrie/Bell Productions have targeted the weekend after Labor Day for the Fourth Eastbound Throwdown at Irwin Farm in Salem, New York. The festival presents local and regional acts in styles including bluegrass, Americana, roots and rock. The idyllic setting in the rolling hills of Eastern New York State adds to the relaxed atmosphere of the two day event. Just thirty minutes east of Saratoga Springs, the venue features a hill forming a natural amphitheater facing the Main Stage.
Performances will be scheduled on both the Main Stage and the Pond Stage, over the course of both days. This year’s lineup is not yet complete, but a limited number of Blind Faith discounted tickets are available at $50. Once those are sold, the price will be $65.
It is a family friendly event, and all ages are welcome to attend. One ticket price is good for both days and includes camping. Local vendors will offer selected food and beverages, and attendees may bring certain items of their own, as described on the festival website. Additional information and guidelines may also be found there, or by contacting kim@guthriebellproductions with any questions. Tickets are available through both of the links listed above.
