Encore! Encore!

I have great news for fans of the Vintage Band Festival – the festival is returning to Northfield in August 2013!

Mark your calendars now!  Stay tuned for more details!
Members of the VBF 2010 organizing committee met last week to recap last summer’s four-day event, which attracted impressive crowds (attendees came from as far away as Florida) and boosted the town’s economy.  Enthusiasm was high for organizing another festival; the big question was when to have it.  Because it takes a tremendous amount of planning and volunteer time, the committee determined that it made the most sense to schedule it for Aug. 1-4, 2013.

I’d love to have a book about G. Oliver Riggs completed by then, so I could hawk it to all those vintage music lovers.  Now that I have a deadline to work toward, I’d better get going!


  1. Seems like a reasonable deadline and a good motivator. I'm planning to be one of the first to buy your book - and I do hope you'll sign it for me!

  2. Keep in mind the Sesquicentennial of the Civil War that year will draw many bands to other locations, but if the date is right...
