Stars from Vermont and internationally known musicians team up for a lively two-day festival of folk and blues music performed in the pure country air of historic Plymouth Notch, birthplace of the 30th U.S. President. All concerts are free, and donations are appreciated. We are also taking food donations of non-perishables for the Vermont Foodbank. The festival will be held rain or shine and there will be no indoor venue this year.
The performance is included in your sliding scale entrance to the farmer's market. Gates Open: 5:30 PM / Food Service: 5:30 – 8 PM / Bar Service: 5:30 – 9 PM
Duo with Krishna Guthrie. This show is "Pay What You Can" so feel free to stop by and check it out.
Chetfest is a unique opportunity to enjoy a live rock show on a working dairy farm. The stage is set in the haymow of our timber frame barn, which makes for excellent sound. The music will begin with Bow Thayer and his band drawing from Bow's ever-increasing catalog of material. While Bow's music often falls into the Americana genre, swamp rock is closer to reality. Next, the stage will be graced by No Small Children - "Rockin chicks by night, school teachers by day". Their sing-along songs described as "edgy" and "breakneck" will if possible take the energy to another level. Doors at 3, music starts around 5. This is a working dairy farm and our home. Please be respectful of animals and humans. BYOB. No dogs/pets on-premises.

Bow Thayer will be releasing a new album written over the course of the Covid pandemic and recorded at his Central Vermont studio, “The Woodshed”. Thayer’s playing makes up the lion’s share of tracks, but the recording also features long-time drummer Jeff Berlin and Boston bass staple Jeremy Dryden, both of whom will be joining Thayer for the Spruce Peak show. Other guests providing tracks remotely from the left coast include Chris McGandy (Perfect Trainwreck) on pedal steel and Val McCallum (Jackson Browne, Lucinda Williams, Bonnie Raitt) on guitar. The show will cover most of the new album as well as some old favorites. It is hard to say what will really conspire on the night of February 20 but expect Thayer, Dryden and Berlin to rattle the walls of this beautiful and spacious room. As always, Thayer will incorporate multiple unique instruments into the set with fresh songs that depict a look of humanity observed from the “green bubble” of Vermont. Sometimes groovy, sometimes dissonant, often thought-provoking and ultimately positive.
