I can’t tell you how good it felt to be out in the open air listening to live music again. From October 7 through October 9, I had the pleasure of attending the¬†Hocking Hills Music Festival put on by the gang at Stuarts Opera House. The festival, in it’s first year, was a combination of the Duck Creek Music Festival and the Nelsonville Music Festival and was a great experience despite the challenges of Covid, staffing changes and staff shortages.

Taking place at the beautiful Rockbridge in the Hocking Hills Region of Ohio, the festival featured a solid lineup, great sound and a location that was the perfect size.

Here are some of the artists that I saw perform over the three-day festival.
