Highlands Festival at Waterloo has good bones

The first ever, Highlands Festival at Waterloo took place this weekend.  Breaking ground on a new festival is a daunting task.  You are creating a community – for just one weekend.  Hopefully the mixture of humans, arts, intentions, coalesces into future gatherings, movements and action that spill out into our community. 

The Highlands Fest has laid the foundation for future events to shine a light on Northwest New Jersey’s water, farms, fields, peeps, and the challenges that lie ahead in one of New Jersey’s last rural regions. 

I am tired, but the good kind. After a weekend full of community and affirmation that this is truly a special corner of the earth.   More to come on the Highlands Coalition.


The Pfeiffer Twins to perform at the Highlands Festival at Waterloo

Over 20 local north jersey bands will perform September 21st and 22nd at the first Highlands Festival at Waterloo.

Northwest New Jersey sisters, The Pfeiffer Twins “are happy to join the Highlands Festival and perform our original songs to a local audience”, said Carrie Pfeiffer.” We always enjoy performing in their own community and feeling the love of support of their hometown fans.”
The Pfeiffer Twins will perform on the Gazebo Stage at 3:45, Saturday, September 21st in Historic Waterloo Village, Byram, NJ.

Carrie and Lindsay Pfeiffer have been busy finishing up recording their breakthrough debut album, entitled “Nobody’s Puppet,” with producer Anthony Krizan of Sonic Boom Studios in Raritan, NJ. The CD release party is slated for November at the legendary Stanhope House, the twins’ new home venue. Fans can find the Pfeiffer Twins hosting “The Country Sessions” open mic jam at the Stanhope House every other Thursday evening.

They recently opened for New Riders of the Purple Sage and plan to join Railroad Earth on their Horn-O-Plenty Thanksgiving Weekend Festival at the Sherman Theater in Stroudsburg, PA.
