9th Annual Haverford Music Festival Set for Saturday, Sept. 7
The 9th Annual Haverford Music Festival (HMF), presented by ACME Markets, takes place on Saturday, September 7th. A WXPN Welcomes event, HMF features live music from over 30 national, regional and local performers. This family-oriented festival will run from noon to 9:30 p.m. on four stages near the intersection of Eagle and Darby Roads in Havertown. Area businesses and food vendors will fill booths along Darby Road and Hathaway Lane. There will also be two beer gardens, a moon bounce and playground for the kids, and much more fun. Admission is free; voluntary donations will be accepted at the gates.
Announcing Our 2019 Headliners!
Headlining the 9th Annual HMF will be roots-rock duo Larry Campbell & Teresa Williams, who’ve played with Bob Dylan and Levon Helm, among many others, and won rave reviews for their own albums and full-band concerts; Teddy Thompson, son of British musicians Richard & Linda Thompson and long-recognized as a distinctive and distinguished singer/songwriter in his own right; and Villanova University alumnus Ryan Montbleau and his band, playing a soulful mix of rock, folk, R&B, Americana, and funk. Preceding The Ryan Montbleau Band will be singer-songwriter Amy Rigby. Rigby first surfaced during the 1980s as a member of the New York City-based cowpunk outfit The Last Roundup, and later the girl group the Shams. She made her solo debut in 1996 with Diary of a Mod Housewife, a record widely acclaimed for its vivid portraits of life as a single mother and its smart assimilation of pop, country, and folk sounds. Since then, Amy has made several more critically acclaimed records, including three with her husband, British singer-songwriter Wreckless Eric (who will accompany her on bass), and 2018’s brilliant The Old Guys.
Originated by the 501c3 non-profit Haverford Township Civic Council, the Haverford Music Festival is a fundraiser to support Haverford Township community programs and projects. To date, more than $100,000 has been distributed among several worthy organizations that enrich Haverford Township, such as Hav-a-Rain Garden, Haverford Township Farmers Market Association, Haverford Historical Society and Heritage Festival Committee, Haverford High School Parent Teacher Student Association, Haverford Township Free Library Kelly Music for Life, Haverford Partnership for Economic Development and Haverford Township Adult School
We are accepting performer applications for the 2019 Haverford Music Festival until June 17th.
