Glastonbury Apple Harvest Festival

We're thrilled to be back at the Glastonbury Apple Harvest Festival this year. We played last year (a Sunday morning set) but this year, the festival has undergone a musical overhaul, led by local music impresario Chip McCabe. From a recent article in the Hartford Courant:
Bonsai Trees is a band comprised of Glastonbury and South Windsor High Schools, while the Guinea Pigs – a group which happened to play the festival last year—has a drummer who owns Cycling Concepts (sic - Steve, actually owns Bicycles East) in Glastonbury. Johnny Mainstream is a band from Manchester.
The bands will play at three stages, including the Vendor Village stage, the Welcome stage near the main entrance, and at the Harvest Pub (in the festival's beer garden). Each band will play a 30-minute set.
We're excited to be bringing an "all-originals" set to the festival, and thrilled to share the weekend with an amazing group of local bands:

Hartford HodgePodge Video

We recently stumbled across this video from 2013 - and were delighted to find ourselves spotlighted (starting at the 1:10 mark). We love Hartford HodgePodge, although we were not able to play this year.
