Old Time Music and Harvest Festival features bluegrass and baseball!

Come celebrate traditional music and a bountiful harvest at the Spencer-Peirce-Little Farm, Little’s Lane, Newbury, MA on Saturday, September 29, from 11 am to 5 pm. Enjoy a day of traditional music, baseball, and farm activities featuring the old-time music of High Range, The Waterfront Park String Band, Rise!, the Bogosian Knoblach Duo, O’Carolan Etc., and more. ** All acts will be performed under a tent so the music will happen rain or shine.

Watch Vintage Base Ball played by 1861 rules. See tractors and other farm equipment spanning the last eighty years. Try your hand at corn husking and win prizes at the pie-eating contest. Learn how simple machines help farmers pump water, press cider, and prepare food. Enjoy a wagon ride through brightly colored autumn fields, build scarecrows, go on a pumpkin treasure hunt, and make fall crafts. Tour the 1690 stone and brick manor house. Cider, donuts, and hot lunch are available for purchase.
