ed Artists for 2017



Butch Ross & Trish Wileman

As a touring singer/songwriter, Butch was given a mountain dulcimer as a present. Before long it became his instrument of choice. His new CD, Found Objects, is comprised of “songs he’s previously recorded for various side projects, compilations and one off musical divergences that struck a particularly necessary nerve in his body”. He plays with finesse and energy.

Trish has performed leading roles in theatre, opera and musical theatre. She is also an accomplished director. “She has a heart for performers and finds her passion in encouraging individuals to discover, cultivate and enjoy the gift of their own voice, in singing and acting.

Butch and Trish have taught workshops together on the Art of The Singer/Songwriter at Kentucky Music Week

Harmony Harvest takes place at the Fairfield County Fairgrounds in Lancaster, Ohio, which is about 40 minutes down U.S. Rt. 33 from Columbus.

  If this is a return visit to the festival, you know that the Grandstand and other buildings provide wonderful settings for both classrooms and shelter from the sun, rain and other weather. The surrounding green space is a pleasant camping area. Leashed pets are welcomed too!

  Again there will be a jam tent for those who just cannot get enough of that.  There will also be jamming in the evenings after open stage and the concert.

  Friday evening is our traditional Bean & Cornbread Supper provided free of charge by our club.     Saturday features the Potluck Supper, so bring something to share with 8-10 people. There are also many restaurants in the area from which to choose.

 Pets OK, but must be leashed at all times and should not attend concerts.  THANKS!
