Drawing from the Americana tradition and keeping a roots rock sensibility, Naked Blue has become a mainstay on the singer-songwriter/pop scene and can be seen from 1:30–4:30pm on April 2. Under the Bandstand from 1–3:30pm on April 3, will be Nelly’s Echo, a singer/songwriter featured on a previous season of NBC’s The Voice who describes his music as “storytelling with groove” or “folk with soul.”
Other musical acts that can be seen throughout the two-day festival include Dave Hawkins, Anna Burgess, Chris Sacks, and Joe Hickey. On both Saturday and Sunday, sea glass experts, including Mary McCarthy, director of The Beachcombing Center, available on both days while Richard LaMotte, author of Pure Sea Glass, will be available Saturday only.
