Miners Creek playing at Belfast Farmers’ Market in 2016
We’re still rounding out our entertainment calendar for the upcoming summer season in the yard at Waterfall Arts. If you are a musician or know of buskers coming into this area from May through October, we’d love to hear from you. Our pay is your exposure to our customers and a generous basket of fresh local goods donated by each of our members at market the day of your performance. We provide a canopy, and there is electricity available. Market runs rain or shine. Contact Resa Randolph, ResaSings@gmail.com, for more information, and please do share this info with your musical friends.
