It’s Black Potatoe Festival week!

The aptly names Quarry Stage, for the more rocking music.  The River Stage features the more acoustic sounds.

This is a mere hour from NWNJ and worth the trip. The Black Potatoe Music Festival is the very best in independent music arts that happens in NJ….period.

Yes, I am biased.  I used to work with Matt Angus back in the day at the Stanhope House, full disclosure.  He booked the best music then and has for years at his festival.

I guaranteed if you go, you will walk away with a list of artists that blew your ever loving mind and you will wonder why you never heard of these artists before.  That is what Matt does best, he puts a spotlight on the unsung heroes of the indie music scene. These are artists who love their work and create music from the heart.

With Beth Williams, Matt’s better half has helped to guide the festival and keep the integrity of the event.  It is a must for any lover of indy, americana, folk, eclectic music.  Hardcore fans are belovedly known at Potatoe Heads.

Some artists to check out this year are Katie PearlmanThe Voodudes, Ellis Paul, Sarah Donner, The Wahoo Skiffle Crazies and the Matt Angus Thing.
