The fifth annual Four Corners Music Festival takes place on Saturday, August 11 at the Cabbage Patch, from 2:30 PM to 7:30 PM, featuring a talented and eclectic lineup of musicians on two different stages. Here’s a look at the musicians and bands who will be taking the main stage on Saturday.
Peter Parcek's lightning-strike guitar playing has been electrifying audiences in America and abroad for years. He possesses an unparalleled ability to blend influences that embrace roots, folk, country, rockabilly, surf, jazz, and gypsy music into his own distinctly original hybrid.
Parcek was nominated by the Blues Foundation for “The Mathematics of Love”, his previous full-length release. The CD earned Peter a much-deserved Blues Music Award nomination for Best New Artist Debut. Parcek has also been chosen as the New England Music Awards Blues Artist of the Year and the Blues Audience Magazine’s Guitarist of the Year in addition to multiple nominations by the Boston Music Awards. “You’re as bad as Eric Clapton,” Buddy Guy once told him. “And I know Eric Clapton.”
Bohemians are a group of Melrosians who drink coffee at The Bohemian Coffeehouse and play a mix of Americana, blues, rock, and pop songs. Trading songs between group members, the Bohemians seek to create a relaxed atmosphere for sharing music. The lineup is: Jeremy Van Cleave (vocals, mandolin, guitar), Hannah Estabrook (vocals and the occasional tambourine), Jason English (vocals, guitar), and Ken Templeton (vocals, guitar).
Salinger is an art/alt rock band based in Boston (two members are from Melrose!). They have played shows all around the Boston area and are releasing their second EP this week!
