Musical acts announced for Carbondale New School benefit festival

Three musical groups have been announced for the Carbondale New School's sixth annual "Locally Grown Music Festival" on Sunday, April 17.

Joey Odum and Friends, Party Pants, and Cat Daddy'O will all headline the bill.

The festival is held at the Rustle Hill Winery in Route 51 in Cobden.

"The festival is a major fundraiser for Carbondale New School, and the winery's venue is perfect for music fans and families alike," Carbondale New School Director Amanda Sheridan said.

Admission to the musical portion of the festival is free, but $10 wristbands are required for most children's activities. T-shirts will also be sold for $15 and $20.

Carbondale New School will also be observing the 42nd anniversary of what was once considered a unique experiment in education of students from kindergarten through eighth grade with small class sizes and individualized curriculum, all funded by tuition and fundraising projects. Carbondale New School is non-profit.

A rain date for the "Locally Grown Music Festival" has been scheduled for Sunday, May 2.
