“If you hear twangs of mandolin or fiddle wafting across the East River, it’s not carrying up the coast from Nashville — it’s the first Brooklyn Americana Music Festival, taking place on several stages in Dumbo.” -The New York Times

“Spiritual Successor: Americana jamboree revives old music and old festival. Just like American tunes grew out of an older tradition, the first-year Americana festival is rooted in a previous one — it is a spiritual successor to the now-defunct Dumbo Arts Festival,” -The Brooklyn Paper, NY Post.
