We are excited to welcome headliner Railroad Earth to Highberry. They are considered by many to be one of the top Blue Grass bands on the festival scene today. The backdrop of the Mulberry should provide the perfect bluegrass experience for 2 beautiful Highberry evenings.
From the UK, doing a late night slot, Ott is a British record producer and musician who has worked with Sinéad O’Connor, Embrace, The Orb, and Brian Eno, and has achieved recognition since 2002 for his own psychedelic dub tracks and his collaborations with Simon Posford (Hallucinogen / Shpongle). He has released two albums on Twisted Records: Blumenkraft (2003), Skylon (2008) and one album on Ottsonic: Mir (2011).
The Schwag will be back at Highberry for the 3rd time playing a late night set. Highberry veterans are well aware of the epic shows that the Schwag performed back in 2011 & 2012. The Schwag hold a special place in our heart and we are happy to have them back once again. Jimmy Tebeau (Schwag frontman) has taken this band to a new levels with their interpretation of the Grateful Dead.
The Steepwater Band out of Chicago brings home that grungy southern rock feel. If you caught them at Phases of the Moon, then you know how good they are. These guys are MONSTERS on the guitar.
A Live One – A Phish Tribute Band out of Austin, TX. Formed in 2010, these guys have been touring constantly and are the real deal. Recently played at the Phases of the Moon festival.
Friends of the Phamily – Kind of like the Highberry house band. The only band to play each of the 5 past Highberrys, and now again for the 6th year. Bringing a southern rock psychedelic jam style flavor to the table.
Woody & Sunshine – Local favorite bluegrass duo. Sunshine plays the banjo and Woody plays the guitar and they kick ass! Always a fun show
