The Ninth Annual Rock Ribs and Ridges Festival is this weekend at the Sussex County Fairgrounds in Augusta.
On Saturday, doors open at noon with the Matt Coffy band onstage at 1pm. Hannah Wicklund and the Stepping Stones play at 2:15. (They played in our performance studio last year and they are terrific.) The Artimus Pyle Band plays at 3:30. (Artimus once played drums in Lynyrd Skynyrd.) Outlaws play at 5:30. Foghat headlines at 7:30.
On Sunday, local heroes the Farmer Phil Band begin the day at 1pm. Poco plays at 2:30. Travis Tritt is on at 4:30 and the Weight Band (a Band tribute act) closes the show at 6:30.
Ribbers will be there from all over the northeast.
Here on NNJ, we'll do a Rock Ribs and Ridges weekend and play lots of music from bands who have played the festival, past and present. I'll broadcast live on Saturday. Borasio will host on Sunday.
Rock Ribs and Ridges is a rain-or-shine event.
