Funhouse Fest Returns To Williamsburg VA – June 23 – 25, 2017

Bruce Hornsby & Virginia Arts Festival are thrilled to announce the return of Funhouse Fest to the Lawn of the Art Museums of Colonial Williamsburg, June 23 – 25!  Named after Bruce’s 1998 song “Funhouse,” the 3-day event is once again curated by Bruce, who will be performing in three unique projects over the course of the weekend, and unites musicians known for their broad-ranging, genre-defying styles.  The initial line-up announcement, ticketing information and full festival info can be found at FunhouseFest.com.

Headliners for Funhouse Fest 2017 are nine-time Grammy® Award winner Sheryl Crow, two sets from festival host Bruce Hornsby & the Noisemakers, the blues-jazz-roots ensemble Lake Street Dive, and genre-bending singer-songwriter Rhiannon Giddens. Acclaimed British female trio The Staves and the adventurous ensemble yMusic will offer individual sets while also collaborating on a one-of-a-kind performance, and acclaimed jazz saxophonist Kenny Garrett will be among the artists performing. Additional artists will be announced soon.

“I only want to do the Funhouse Fest every year if we can put together a special, unique and stylistically varied array of artists.” said Hornsby. “This year’s lineup fits that description and builds on last year’s in every way. From Sheryl Crow to Rhiannon Giddens, from jazz great Kenny Garrett to British vocal trio The Staves, the totally original chamber group yMusic and Lake Street Dive, this year’s group is truly exciting. Can’t wait!”

The three performances offered by festival host Bruce Hornsby include Top 90 Time – Bruce Hornsby & the Noisemakers Play The Hits & Near Hits on Friday, Saturday’s Bruce Sings Jerry – The Music of the Grateful Dead performed by Bruce Hornsby & the Noisemakers with The Staves and additional special guests, and a special Bruce Hornsby & Sonny Emory Duo performance on Sunday.

About mrwilliamsburg

I love Williamsburg !
Being “Mr. Williamsburg” and starting my web site in 2004 has been a great way for me to help people looking for homes for sale, communities and an “insider knowledge.” of the area.
Turned out I was onto something. Because I offer in-depth information and up-to-the-minute blogging, even international clients have found me. One couple, moving back to the States from France, told me that a post I wrote blog about grocery shopping in Williamsburg convinced them that Williamsburg was the place to be, and that I was the best source by far that they found on the web.
I’m happy to say that I hear similar comments from many of my clients looking for homes throughout Williamsburg and Hampton Roads.
I grew up in Virginia Beach, Va, After attending college, I worked at a number of positions including manager of a land development and construction company and business manager of a cut flower business that we grew in sales from $300,000 to $15 million (we were supplier to Whole Foods and one of the first cut flower suppliers to Costco).
In 2004, it seemed like a good time to simplify my life. I moved my family from Annapolis to Williamsburg. I went into real estate with Liz Moore and Associates, and was one of the initial agents when Liz opened her Williamsburg branch.
My sons Zach and Josh attend Lafayette High School and Hornsby Middle School and are crazy about sports and the outdoors.
I feel lucky to be living the dream, and saving two to four hours by not driving on the DC beltway every day. So, I can now spend my time with family while concentrating on learning — and sharing — information about living in Williamsburg.
In real estate, no two people or transactions are the same. Everything’s a challenge, and I’m rewarded every time in close a transaction and have the opportunity to see the smiles on clients’ faces.
Please email or call me for assistance with any real estate questions about the area
