HAWLEY - On Saturday, October 13th at 7:30 p.m., the fifth annual Hawley Harvest Hoedown Bluegrass & Folk Concert returns to the Ritz Theater. The concert will feature another triple bill of well-loved bluegrass & folk bands from the northeast region of the United States.

The event will be hosted by Chris Kearney of Hickory Project (previously of The Coal Town Rounders).

Three stars

The lineup includes globally acclaimed Hickory Project, whose hard-driving traditional and original acoustic music is deeply rooted in bluegrass, yet unpredictably mixes Celtic, jazz, swing, Appalachian and blues with a rock-solid foundation.  

Also, debuting in Hawley is Serene Green, who is on a mission to preserve one of America’s greatest traditions, with a vibrant sound emphasizing instrumental prowess, soaring three-part harmonies, and original songwriting.

Completing this solid triple bill is Man About A Horse, whose music reflects the wide range of influences on this Philadelphia-based band, from blues and rock to classical and pop, all blended together by a traditional bluegrass lineup. Man About a Horse’s first full-length album debuted at #11 on the Billboard Bluegrass Chart in 2017 and the band notched its first position on the Bluegrass Today radio chart in 2018.

Jill Carletti, organizer of the Hawley Harvest Hoedown Bluegrass Concert exclaimed, “We’re thrilled to have these three very complimentary bluegrass and folk bands conclude this fun-filled fall harvest festival. The combination of all three of these consummate musicians will definitely put Hawley in a state of folk and bluegrass bliss! We hope to see the local area’s support of the Ritz Theater, Harmony Presents, Downtown Hawley and these phenomenal bands on Oct 13th!”


Tickets are $18, $22 and $25. Tickets may also be purchased in person at Doodles & Main on 121 Main Ave. in Hawley during their business hours.

Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. and the show begins at 7:30 p.m.  VIP tickets and Concert Sponsorship opportunities are also available via a form on the ticketing page.

Cocoon Coffee House will cater wine, beer, coffee and snacks on site at The Ritz Theater during the show.

Ritz Theater is located at 512 Keystone Street.
