In 2021 the AmeriServ Flood City Music Festival triumphantly returned after a pandemic hiatus, but was delayed from our usual summer dates to Oct. 1-2. We enjoyed crisp, clear fall weather, and spectacular performances! The West Philadelphia Orchestra’s Balkan brass was a highlight of Friday afternoon, and Maggie Rose made tons of new fans in the early evening before Uprooted feat. Michael Glabicki of Rusted Root took the stage. Roosevelt Collier turned in a late-night set for the ages, bringing Maggie Rose onstage for a truly epic collaboration. On Saturday Billy Price entertained a huge pavilion crowd, while Midnight North and Bruce Hornsby & the Noisemakers turned in fantastic mainstage sets. The festival closed with Marco Benevento, whose set was, as one festival fan put it, “the dance party we all needed.” Thanks for being part of it!
