Belfast Free Range Music Festival + Three Tides

A quote from the Bangor Daily News in regards to the festival... "Headliner Michael Hurley of Oregon and local favorites the Toughcats packed the house at the Colonial Theatre."...We were very excited to be apart of the Belfast Free Range Music Festival this year. Such a great event, a ton of great music, very well run/organized and it included playing at the same venue and on the same stage as Michael Hurley...We are big fans of his songs and recordings. We also had the good fortune of seeing him in Biddeford at the Oak + the Axe (a great venue by the way) the night before and then enjoyed his set before we got to play..quite a treat. Jake asked him to sign a couple of LP's, including Armchair Boogie..an all time favorite and our gateway to his music...Thanks to John Dietrich for turning us on to him.
We also had a chance to visit Three Tides/Marshal Wharf Brewing for the after party...5 stars..a triple buy it!
