Music

Singer/guitarist Bill Ihling will perform in the music tent. The Hunterdon native returned to this area recently after spending 10 years operating a small farm in Kansas. Prior to moving west in 2004, Bill played bass and sang harmony with long-ago Hunterdon bands such as The Lost Weekend Swamp Stompers, Back In The Saddle, The Mt. Pleasant Garage Band and The Buffalo Hollow Bluegrass Band.  His current acoustic Americana repertoire features everything from solo guitar versions of 1960s pop hits and 1970s rock classics, “old-school” and “hippie” country, and the best of contemporary singer-songwriters. You can find out more about his music at his website or Facebook page.

Our Farmers’ Market sponsors are Basil Bandwagon Natural Market, Matt’s Red Rooster Grill, Tom McMillan with Weidel Realtors and Team Capital Bank.
