he 14th annual Sugar Hill Folk Festival will take place from 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday, August 12th at Sugar Hill Senior Living Community, on the lawn of the Crane Mansion, 45 Main Street, Dalton, MA 01226
The headliners are Adler & Hearne of Winnsboro, Texas; The Levins of Congers, N.Y., and Berkshire County's Bernice Lewis with Dan Broad and Mariah Colorado. Husband-and-wife duos The Levins and Adler & Hearne will perform, and Lewis will play alongside Mariah Colorado, her daughter, and bass player Dan Broad. A fixture in the local music community, Lewis said that she started the festival "on a fluke" in 2005. Her mother had moved to Sugar Hill, and sound engineer Don Harris pointed out that the expansive lawns and stone porticos would make for a lovely setting to put on a festival.
Funding from seven sponsors, including the Massachusetts Cultural Council and Adams Community Bank, allows the festival to be free and open to all and appropriate for all ages.
Proceeds from the sale of refreshments will go to the Alzheimer's Association.
