Festival-goers basked in three magical days of live music, farm-fresh food and community at the 10th anniversary edition of Holler Fest in Irish Hills, in southern Jackson County.
More than 60 bands graced the festival’s four stages on Frog Holler Farm during the weekend, with sets by Ben Daniels Band, Vox Vidorra, Rollie Tussing & the Midwest Territory Band, Andru Bemis, Barbarossa Brothers, Appleseed Collective, Libby DeCamp, Jack and the Bear, Rollie Tussing, Joe Reilly, Wire in the Wood and others.
A lively and energetic Ben Daniels band lit up the main stage Friday night, rambling through a set of originals and covers that inspired throngs of dancing revelers. Meanwhile, folk troubadour Andru Bemis serenaded a cabin full of eager listeners with his songs of travel and wandering.
A mostly perfect forecast gave way to a few heavy rain showers Saturday afternoon, causing some delays in performance times, but weather cleared in time for evening performances by Barbarossa Brothers, Appleseed Collective and Olivia Mainville.
Closing out the final day of the festival were sets by Cold Tone Harvest, Creole du Nord and Grand Rapids’ own Vox Vidorra and Watching for Foxes.
