Now entering its fourth year, Beacon Riverfest has been steadily shaping up to become one of the Hudson Valley’s most promising summer music festivals. To fund the outdoor event, which traditionally takes place at Beacon’s Waterfront Park, festival organizers are presenting Beacon Winterfest this Saturday, March 2, at the Roundhouse at Beacon Falls.

The musical money-raiser, which takes place in the historic building’s stunning Waterfall Room, begins at 7pm and stars Yarn, the Big Bright, and Antje Dukevot. A returning Riverfest favorite, Yarn is led by singer-songwriter Blake Christiana and plays jammy Americana rock comparable to the Grateful Dead and Widespread Panic. The Big Bright, a new collaboration between Ollabelle’s Glenn Patscha and Fiona McBain and singer-songwriter Liz Tormes, has picked this date to make its Hudson Valley debut. Acclaimed Boston-based singer-songwriter Dukevot combines beautiful vocals with the poetic sensibilities of Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Paul Simon, and Leonard Cohen.

The concert is being co-sponsored by Beacon Natural Market, WFUV-FM, Beacon Music Factory, and Chronogram. For tickets and more information, visit www.local845.com.

    When it comes to the dream of running off to join the circus, lucky for your kids (and your band aid supply), they don’t have to stand on their bike’s handlebars in the middle of the cul-de-sac. They can just head over to Hudson and Chatham for free Cirkus After School classes with the Bindlestiff Family Cirkus!
