Fourth annual Sheatherfest brings folky vibes

The fourth annual Sheatherfest, a local bluegrass festival, begins Friday, Sept. 6 and will run the whole weekend. The event will kick off at 7 p.m. in the Oakdale High School Theater. The rest of the festival will take place in Knights Ferry: at the River’s Edge restaurant on Saturday and Rick’s Saloon on Sunday.
“Will Taylor (“Willy Tea Taylor” of The Good Luck Thrift Store Outfit) organizes the three day event known as Sheatherfest to celebrate great music-lover Dave Sheather,” said Heaven Lindsey-Burtch, a musician set to perform on the last day of the festival and California State University, Stanislaus alumnus.
“Will does his best to get all of Dave’s favorites from across the country out to [Oakdale and Knights Ferry].”
The money raised goes to the performers “who this year include Willie Watson of Old Crow Medicine Show, Sandy Rogers, Possessed by Paul James, The Haunted Windchimes, The Harmed Brothers, along with many more,” Lindsey-Burtch said.
Friday’s show will benefit the Oakdale High Drama Club, and it is recommended for ages 12 and up. Tickets will be $10 for high school students and $20 for everyone else.
And for those 21 and over, the Sheatherfest IV kickoff party begins at 10 p.m. at the Cow Track Lounge in Oakdale. Entry charge is $15.
Saturday’s show at the River’s Edge starts at noon and will run all day. Entry costs $25, and children 10 and under get in for free.
The last day of Sheatherfest will be at Rick’s Saloon in Knights Ferry starting at noon. It is a 21-and-over event only, and tickets are for sale at $15 each.
A weekend pass runs $50.
For fans of bluegrass, americana and folk music, this looks to be a promising festival with a welcoming vibe.
