See Live Music in 100-Year-Old Apple Orchards

Music appeals to so many people because it comes in so many varieties. And several of those genres will be represented at Gowan’s Cider 145th Harvest Festival. Dust in My Coffee will play cowboy Celtic-folk; Dirty Cello will deliver blues, rock, and bluegrass; pianist Wendy Dewitt will play and sing boogie-woogie blues; One-Eyed Reilly will churn out modern Celtic rock and Americana; and Township the Band will perform classic and southern rock. See them on stage, outside in Gowan’s heirloom orchards, on August 21, 11 a.m.–7 p.m., and August 22, 11 a.m.–5 p.m. Admission is $25 for each day and includes Gowan’s award-winning cider; $20 tickets are available for those who don’t want cider. Cider Club members will get early access to the orchards at 10 a.m. See the complete schedule and purchase tickets at
