(July 22, 2016) – Last August, on a warm idyllic summer evening, more than 300 of your neighbors and friends made their way to Fleischmanns, up a winding driveway, to Spillian’s mansion and meadow for more than 2 hours of acoustic and plugged in blues based artistry from 17 year old Hudson Valley native Dylan Doyle. It was the first annual SpillianFest, a magical evening of authentic Southern BBQ and smoking hot music, framed by the inspirational setting of Spillian and the Catskill mountain.
There’s history in those mountains and there’s history in Spillian’s meadow—the very same meadow that has been the scene of weddings, reunions, birthdays, performances and events over more than 100 years—a place where artistry, history and geography have been fueling inspiration for decade after decade.
Tomorrow, event organizers are turning the heat up even higher for SpillianFest 2016 — a Cajun inspired feast of music and food, as Dylan Doyle returns to claim his piece of history. What really makes this evening a one-of-a-kind, don’t miss event is that the entire show is being recorded for Dylan’s next CD – Live at Spillian and will be broadcast live by co-sponsors WIOX Community Radio. It’s your chance to be part of the live CD— as Dylan and some very special guests will perform blues classics and new originals in a rocking, dancing, cajun food fueled afternoon and evening of great music, and the reveal of Dylan’s newest original songs.
“Dylan Doyle is like a young, white Jimi Hendrix.” Ben Cauley, Sole surviving band member of the Otis Redding plane crash.
The event will start with a Cajun feast and the amazing get-your-feet-dancing-it’s-a-party groove of the Zydeco Revelators!
