Bio: Spitfire Roots Rock N' Soul Music!

Rio and the Rockabilly Revival front woman Rio Scafone appears to be a living contradiction. She’s rock 'n' roll angel and brimstone incarnate; the preacher’s daughter meets sexy exotic raven-haired pin-up meets Bettie-Page-on-a-rampage. She takes the stage, a... See Full Bio

    Nor-East’r Music & Art Festival: June 13–15, 2014 On the second weekend of June, 2014, the Nor-East’r Music & Art Festival returns to the Oscoda County Fairgrounds for the eleventh time annually: three straight days of eclectic music and art, food, dancing, camping, jamming, drumming, and some of the greatest parkin’ lot pickin’ in the state. Three stages host continuous music morning to night, ranging from blues to bluegrass, country to new age, jam bands, old-time, Celtic, folk, and even a little rock. Artists offer varied original work from woodcarving to glasswork, jewelry to stonework, basket-making, fiber art, photography, and of course, the indispensable festival tie-dye. All this and more makes Nor-East’r one of Michigan’s best festival experiences. If you’re a fan of music, you will want to check out the national, regional, and Michigan acts performing on our stages. The huge main stage is the centerpiece of the grounds, surrounded by great shade trees and in close proximity to food and art vendors, campsites, and bathrooms. The Parlor Stage is an intimate indoor venue adjoined to an eatery where you can have breakfast, lunch, or dinner, or just come to enjoy the premium live music. The Barn Stage has everything from dances to children’s song writing to full bands. On Saturday and Sunday, workshops for musicians from beginner to advanced level are hosted in workshop areas around the grounds. A juried art fair features artisans and their own original art and craftsmanship. Artists also host workshops, inviting you to come and learn how to make and create, so you can be the artist too. The development of youth musical talent and involvement is fostered throughout the festival program, including a giveaway of guitars and other instruments for deserving young people, to help get them started. There are ongoing children’s activities including songwriting, open mike, workshops, and arts and crafts in the children’s craft barn. The campgrounds are picturesque and beautiful, offering both rustic and some electric hookup for RVs. Shaded sites, sunny sites, flush and vault toilets, hot showers, clean facilities and of course lots of after-hours jamming. Quiet space can also be found, but for those that don’t want to miss anything, most campsites are close to all activities. Nor-East’r is a family-friendly event much loved for its depth and diversity in musical talent and its workshops to learn directly from talented performers. The Oscoda County Fairgrounds is the perfect location for the festival — the site is very condensed, making it a favorite among those that enjoy going to the varied activities that the festival has to offer. Come and join our little world of music, art, fun, and community for a real weekend away. We hope you’ll come and play with us in June.
