The Block Island Music Festival takes place the second week in June at Captain Nick’s Rock n’ Roll Bar (Block Island’s premiere nightclub and live music venue). This grassroots festival strives to push the envelope by erasing style barriers in order to create a truly unique and exciting musical atmosphere. The result is a six-day long musical gumbo where festival goers sample music performed by the most talented, “undiscovered” artists currently making music in the northeast. In accordance with the organic nature of The Block Island Music Festival, admission is FREE of charge. The festival is a 21+ years of age and proper identification is absolutely required. Children will be admitted between the hours of 5pm-9pm ONLY under strict parental supervision. To further our commitment to providing a unique experience - the music fest BBQ pit will provide FREE food to all festival goers starting at 5pm until supplies run out for the day.
Sounds Like: Bob Dylan, James Taylor, Neil Young, The Civil Wars, Colbie Caillat

"Half is the type of album that even after a myriad of listens doesn’t lose a single ounce of excitement or energy. From the first sensual notes of album opener, “One Way Road” to the very last whispers of album closer, “Inch”, Canyon is a downright combustible blend of seductive mysticism and spiritual awareness. She weaves through each tune like someone with way more experiences than her relatively young age has let on, that sort of ‘old soul’ ethos that the best folk singers possess. She is a troubadour secure in her own skin and her own craft and she picks and croons her way through eleven tracks of elegant, pop-infused, indie folk."
