Winter Music Festival

January 12, 2018 - January 14, 2018

Weekend passes and single show tickets for the 16th edition of the annual Florence Winter Music Festival are on sale now. The three-day extravaganza takes place at the Florence Events Center on January 12-14  and showcases a variety of  international touring talent and world class artisans, along with a wealth of locally sourced cuisine and fine libations. On Saturday evening, January 13 at “The Main Event,” the legendary Brit folk rocker Al Stewart performs his multi-platinum “Year of The Cat” hits, ably supported by Oregon’s favorite young story telling troubadour, John Craigie.

The highly anticipated “Friday Night Throwdown” pairs the Appalachian bluegrass stylings of Grammy winning icon Laurie Lewis and her band alongside the blistering Americana banjo and mandolin virtuosity of Jeff Scroggins & Colorado.

The “Supersession 16” which runs from 10:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. on January 13 is a memorable musical marathon featuring the Celtic energy of the Portland based Castletown, the roots harmonies of northern California’s Calaveras, the folk rhythms of Cabin Fever NW and the heartfelt songs of Pretty Gritty. The afternoon will end with the rockin’ western swing of rising Canadian favorites, Petunia &The Vipers.

The Gospel Gumbo Gathering scheduled for Sunday afternoon, January 14 presents the central coast’s finest choir members performing traditional and contemporary selections. The festival closes with a roof raising performance by the popular  Eugene and UO a capella group, On the Rocks.

Tickets are on sale at The Florence Events Center, 715 Quince St, Florence. Call 541-997-1994 or visit wintermusicfestival.org for complete details
