Run by a troika of young artists, the Wassaic Project Summer Festival is a four-ring circus—music, film, dance, and visual arts—held inside and outside a former grain elevator in northeastern Duchess County. Their sixth season is this weekend, from August 2 through August 4.

Highlights this year include the folk duo Sarah Lee Guthrie and Johnny Irion premiering their new Jeff Tweedy-produced album, Wassaic Way. (Sarah Lee is Woody Guthrie's granddaughter.) The actor Martin Starr, best known as Bill Haverchuck in "Freaks and Geeks," will present a film at the festival. Dancers from the Earl Mosley Institute for the Arts, based in New Milford, Connecticut, will also perform.

Hallie Scott, education director of the Wassaic Project joins the episode this week to discuss the summer festival as well as the Wassaic Project in general, including the educational programs available throughout the year.

The Wassaic Project Summer Festival runs from August 2 to August 4. The event is free. For more information, visit Wassaicproject.org.
