Stay tuned for 2013 event details! Last year’s info:

SUNDAY NIGHT: CITIZEN COPE with opener Dirty Dozen Brass Band. Citizen Cope returns to Vermont for the first time in more that 5 years to play the Lake Champlain Maritime Festival. A remarkably charismatic live performer, Citizen Cope has been a committed road warrior, often performing in places where other major artists fear to tread. His distinct musical approach, a laidback gumbo of acoustic blues, singer/songwriter rock ‘n’ roll and deep soul grooves, is redolent of such classic tunesmiths as Randy Newman and Stevie Wonder – both major touchstones for his emotively penned songs.  As such, it’s virtually impossible to put a finger on his inimitable sound. For more information, please visit: “His disaffection with the limits of genre prompts him to craft songs that are diverse, featuring multi-layered tracks that meld the beats of the ghettos of New York, the social conscience of reggae, the bongo drums of cosmopolitan cafes, and glittering surrealistic timbres.” –
