Jean Redpath to headline Rugby Village Festival

CROSSVILLE — World renowned Scottish Folk singer, Jean Redpath, will be just one highlight of this year’s 39th Annual Rugby Village Festival in Historic Rugby on May 17 and 18. This music and arts festival will take place in the restored Victorian village on East Tennessee’s Cumberland Plateau on State Scenic Highway 52. Festival hours will be Friday Noon – 6 p.m and Saturday 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. Eastern Time.

Redpath will perform a featured concert on Friday, May 17, at 7 p.m. EDT. She was born in Edinburgh, Scotland, and arrived in the United States in the 1960s, spending time in Greenwich Village with folk revivalists including Bob Dylan. Since, her first recording in 1962, she has toured extensively throughout the United States, Canada and the world. She sings a variety of traditional and contemporary folk music and has been featured many times on Garrison Keillor’s public radio show, A Prairie Home Companion.

Redpath is just one of seven musical acts featured as part of this year’s festival, including Four Leaf Peat of Knoxville with its Irish tunes and old-time singer Roy Harper. The two-day event will also feature a full lineup of musical acts from the region. A variety of styles from bluegrass to folk should please all tastes from young to old.

The festival will include a wide array of local artists and craftsmen as well. Featured demonstrations will include spinning and gunsmithing. White oak and reed baskets, pottery, jewelry and dolls will be among the many items available for purchase. Food vendors will also offer festival visitors treats to fill out their day.

Historic Rugby will have its 1880s buildings and commissary open to complement the other activities. The Harrow Road Café will offer visitors looking for a break from the day’s many activities seated meals, plus ales and wines. Café hours will be 8:30 a.m. – 9 p.m. Eastern both days.

Admission for the two-day event is $5 per day. There is an additional $10 ticket for the featured Jean Redpath concert Friday evening.
