The 2019 Shodown Flowdown was such a pleasant surprise. There was only a smidgen of promotion for this fest, so information was scarce. They have no website - only a Facebook page., which explains why the crowd was so thin.
Two Stages: Main stage and intimate side-stage, that had a beautiful fire-pit roaring at night. Stages alternated for continuous music from noon to early morning. Local and Regional groups offering fusions of rock, blues, funk, soul.
There is so much flat space to camp, most within viewing distance of the stages.
The crowd was thin, very thin, but all nice people. Lots of kids and dogs. Water, ice, and firewood for sale. Only a few vendors., but the BBQ was great (so was my Jerk Chicken).
I had the most festive of times with Same the Clay Man, Vince the Fresh Fruit Drink Machine, Hannah and Troy (my next-tent neighbors), and some of the Moat Rats. Thanks to all.
The Moat Rats. Lead vocalist Karli Blotzer captures audiences with her powerful, soulful stylings. Tight group performed 2 sets on the intimate side stage. Thanks, Karli, for battling through the bugs. Great group from Pittsburgh. Find them on Facebook.
