Winter Gathering: Level Exchange Music Festival brings summer vibes to frigid Pawtucket

 
 

Usually when one thinks of music festivals, the things that come to mind include visions of wide fields of soft grass, the summer sun radiating in a light blue sky, and people hanging out by the fire and nestling up in your tent’s sleeping bag. Rarely do we think about a fest happening in the middle of a New England winter.

But that’s what’s in store this Saturday (January 30) at Hope Events On Main, located within the Hope Artiste Village in Pawtucket, as the Level Exchange Music Festival promises to be a cornucopia of local musical talents performing for a great cause. With all of the sounds flowing from the stage, it’s sure to bring that warm summer vibe despite the contrasting scenery of the outside.

A portion of the proceeds from the festival will be going to Youth In Action, a non-profit based in Providence that provides after school programs for young people while putting them at the forefront of creating positive social change. Heart-on-sleeve folk rockers Nobody’s Boyscout, the acoustic harmonies of The Fates, Beth Killian, stripped down soul duo The Silent Shoals, as well as Peyton Judge, The Dust Ruffles’ Tammy LaForest, funky R&B act Jetty, cover duo K&M Music, Sean Murphy, hip-hop act Sun Of Sound, Caleb Ezra and the acoustic fusion of Nate Cozzolino & The Lost Arts (pictured up top) will make up a stacked bill that can’t be ignored. With all of this happening you won’t want to miss a single beat and/or strum.

The whole thing starts at 11 a.m. and it’s only $5 at the door. Seems like the perfect way to spend your Saturday afternoon while planning out your evening. For a sneak peek of what’s to come, listen to a few of the artists performing at the Level Exchange Music Festival for a little taste.
