We’re not sure what’s in the water out there in Okemah, Oklahoma but whatever it is sure does help inspire some impressive songwriters. The hometown of Woody Guthrie is also the place where we find John Fullbright. In a time where there is no short supply of guys with guitars, John Fullbright will grab your attention as a commanding singer, clever lyricist and earnest songwriter. From the Ground Up is John Fullbright’s debut studio effort and a solid start for the young songwriter.
It won’t take long as you listen to Is Your Love Big Enough? to draw the conclusion that Lianne La Havas is a special voice. Her enchanting vocals certainly act as the centerpiece to this lovely debut. Yet as you unfold the songs on this album, it becomes clear that you’re not listening to a one-dimensional artist but someone who can sing and play across a wide musical spectrum.

By Bike

Help the earth stay green. Save your green by biking to the festival.

Bike racks are available outside the festival, to provide a safe place for cyclists to store their equipment. While the Walt Whitman Bridge does not offer a bike path, you can use the North Walkway on the Benjamin Franklin Bridge.

The PATCO line, RiverLink Ferry, NJ Transit River Line, and Septa may allow cyclists to bring their bikes on board. If you choose to take Septa, keep a few things in mind and verify SEPTA regulations, please. Cyclists under age 14 must be accompanied by an adult. Bikes must remain on the rack outside the bus and are only permitted during off-peak hours. Groups of cyclists traveling on the Regional Rail must notify rail transportation at least 5 days in advance.

Before you head out, be sure to check out the complete guidelines:
