Falcon Ridge is like the Woodstock of folk music, on a rolling farm in the Berkshires from Aug. 1-3, 2014.
In a genre where your next meal is a big deal, this noontime showcase is a really big deal.
With any luck, LoL duo Dan and Noah Rauchwerk of Holmdel and Jean, a Paterson native, will go on to make tens of dollars in the glamorous world of acoustic music!
If the Brothers Rauchwerk seem sheepish about all this, it’s because they really do want to pull the wool over your eyes, and ears.
They are to Argyle sweater-vests what Michael Jackson was to white gloves. We hear they are angling for Woolite to sponsor their first world tour.
We cannot take credit for the boys’ careers, beyond giving them a tent to play in during a downpour on the Morristown Green. (Argyle’s pretty good when wet; guitars and ukuleles, not so much.)
So there, we took credit anyway.
The Lords and Jean Rohe are darlings of The Minstrel in Morris Township.
Friday’s showcase at Falcon Ridge runs from noon to 5 pm. Twenty-four acts will play. The crowd votes on who gets invited back next year for a longer set.
Here is video of Jean performing Nobody Told Me to Dance, a song for Syria, at last year’s fall festival of the Folk Project of North Jersey.
