Thanks to all who made the 2019 Haverford Music Festival a great success!
The 9th Annual Haverford Music Festival Presented by ACME Markets, took place Saturday, September 7. The community and performers rose to the occasion to make it our best, most well-attended festival to date!
The Haverford Township Civic Council is thrilled to have put on the 9th Annual Haverford Music Festival. We are grateful to our awesome sponsors that allow us the opportunity to hold this wonderful event and also enable the festival to fund so many worthwhile non-profits that help to improve our quality of life in Haverford Township. We also want to extend a special shout-out to all the performers that provided us with such a wide variety of excellent music and entertainment. And as for the HMF Committee and volunteers, words can’t express just how much we appreciate your efforts for working tirelessly to organize this event for our community.
Headlining the 9th Annual HMF were 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 was 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 accompanied her on bass).
