Headliners Announced for Better Festival June 21

We are pleased to announce The Mighty High & Dry as headliners for Better Festival 2014!

The Mighty High & Dry's music is rooted in soulful blues, funk, and jazz. The band is comprised of Chris Teal on drums, Kyle Vock (a Theresa native!) on bass, Alan Murphy on vocals, and Mike Frederick on guitar. Soaring off a recently released, self-titled debut, band members are in the process of recording their second album.

You can visit their page at Reverb Nation to hear some of their tracks—or come down to Better Farm June 21 for Better Festival and catch them at 6 p.m. live.

Here's the 411 on the festival:

Better Festival, the annual open house, fundraiser, and alumni weekend for Better Farm and betterArts, is slated from 12-8 p.m. Saturday, June 21, 2014.
All money raised at the annual music, sustainability, and arts festival will directly fund art- and sustainability-related community outreach initiatives in and around Redwood.
The day-long event features live performances by local and regional bands, a gallery showcasing artwork by painters, sculptors, photographers, and more, booths featuring art and handmade items for sale, tours of the Better Farm campus, information about Better Farm and betterArts 2014 programming, arts and crafts for kids (and adults!), freshly prepared and locally sourced food, a refreshments tent, games, bouncy castle, and more! To introduce betterArts' latest endeavor Better Radio, there will be a booth set up for people to create content for that station. Music will also be recorded for live-streaming and podcasts.
Camping is available for $10/person/night. Accommodations are available Friday through Monday, or any night therein.

Entrance to the festival is free, but donations are strongly encouraged. To volunteer, sponsor, donate, or otherwise get involved, please email info@betterarts.org.
