The Sixth Annual Haverford Music Festival (HMF), presented by ACME Markets, will feature four internationally acclaimed headlining acts. Grammy®-nominated singer/songwriter Lisa Loeb, who started her career with the platinum-selling Number 1 hit song “Stay (I Missed You)” will headline the Oakmont Field Stage. Topping the bill on HMF Darby Road Stage will be longtime, hard-working trio The Figgs, who have a worldwide fan base, a lengthy discography, and have toured and recorded with the legendary Graham Parker. Preceding Lisa Loeb on the Field Stage will be Brooklyn jazz/pop singer-songwriter Sasha Dobson, who is also a member – along with Norah Jones and Catherine Popper – of the trio Puss n Boots. Also appearing are JEM recording artists The Anderson Council, preceding Sasha Dobson on the Field Stage. They are a New Jersey based powerpop band.
More than 25 local and regional artists representing many musical genres, will perform on four stages near the intersection of Eagle and Darby Roads in Havertown. Additional performers will be announced by late July. Performer applications for the 2016 festival are open until May 30.
