Showcasing a wide spectrum of both local and international artists, the stage is set for the 11th edition of the Hudson Music Festival (HMF) that will run from August 5 to 12 with both free and pay-for performances in different venues throughout the town. Said Blair Mackay, artistic director and co-founder of HMF together with Lynda Clouette-Mackay, at a press launch this week, “We are the ultimate intimate festival in the region which gives our audiences a unique opportunity to experience the talented artists we present.”
Some of the highlights of this year's festival include Toronto's acclaimed Mandy Lagan and the Origins Ensemble, who will be performing a unique homage to the music of Joni Mitchell at the Mews Concert Square on Main Road; the blues-roots Steve Payne Trio from the U.K., Montreal jazz guitarist and bluesman Jordan Officer, who will highlight the opening day and night festivities at the Mews; Silky Sky with Sonia Ball, who will be performing the Hudson Yacht Club; and the New York-based Mirror Visions Ensemble, who will anchor HMF's Classical Series.
