Loretta Hagen Brings Award Winning Music to Applefest!
One part Americana, two parts Folk, a dash of Country-flavored rock - all served up by multi award-winning, chart-topping songstress LORETTA HAGEN making her debut at Applefest in the Village of Warwick, NY. Loretta will perform at the Stanley Deming Park stage from 3:30 to festival closing at 5pm.
Applefest began in 1989 as a simple harvest celebration to support the Warwick Valley Community Center and has been named one of the "Top 100 Event" in the country with more than 30,000 attendees travelling from all over the country to experience the apples, culture and entertainment. Applefest is produced by the Warwick Valley Chamber of Commerce and the Warwick Valley Community Center, with proceeds benefitting the two non-profit organizations.
Loretta Hagen delivers rich alto vocals, polished award winning lyrics and tightly woven harmonies; the hallmark of her musical career. A 2013 JAM Awards "Top Female Songwriter of the Year", NJ Folk Festival Songwriter Competition Winner, and CT Folk Festival Finalist, Loretta recently released her third CD, Mud and Stone, featuring uplifting heartfelt ballads, playful up-tempo country swing, and cool bluesy grooves.
"Mud and Stone" debuted at #10 on Folk DJ Charts, consistently #1 on the Roots Music Report for NJ, #5 Top 50 Folk Albums RMR, and receiving airplay throughout the US, Canada and Europe.
Loretta has shared the stage with Pete Seeger, Roger McGuinn, Steve Forbert, Richie Havens, Gretchen Wilson to name a few and plays premiere stages across the Northeast. Loretta's melodies leave folks feeling as if they are listening to their own stories set to song.
