Musician and activist Michael Franti, whose energitic live shows foster a sense of community, is set to host and co-curate Soulshine Festival. He has performed in the Hudson Valley over the past 20 years, including many performances at Mountain Jam. Franti is the creator and lead vocalist of Michael Franti & Spearhead, a band that blends hip hop with a variety of other styles including funk, reggae, jazz, folk, and rock. Franti is thrilled to return to the Hudson Valley to not only perform, but to be able to co-curate Soulshine Festival.

There is no other artist whose universal message of peace, love, compassion, and hope resonates more with us, our listeners and our community than Michael Franti. Michael has been the soul of Mountain Jam and has brought countless memorable moments of joy and positivity to the Hudson Valley over the past 20 plus years. He has been an inspiration to so many and has shown us the transformative power of music and its ability to heal and bring people together. I am so grateful and honored to create with him and my partners at Impact Concerts a new festival with his imprint.
