Enjoy music from around the world at World Music Day, Sunday October 1, 2017!  This free, family-friendly music festival from noon – 6pm at Deer Path Park, is organized by the Hunterdon County Cultural & Heritage Commission in partnership with the Hunterdon County Division of Parks and Recreation, and in collaboration with the Flemington Community Partnership.

A full lineup of performances is headlined by Brooklyn-based Red Baraat, an 8-pc ensemble playing Indian Bhangra-style fusion music, and dubbed by NPR as “the best party band in years.” Also on the Main Stage: Hub Hollow (bluegrass), Groove Merchant Drum and Dance Ensemble, Daniel Johnson and Craig Ebner (Indian/Jazz), Justin Nawn and Bronwyn Bird (Swedish/American folk), and SiriOm Singh and Dror Gliksman (tabla/vocals). World music expert Andy Wasserman presents three 1-hr. kid-friendly workshops, and a jazz jam led by Jack Furlong is followed by a bluegrass jam led by Tim Ryan and Daniella Fischetti.

Food trucks available; bring chairs/blankets. Rain location: Hunterdon Central High School. For more information about the artists and schedule, please visit www.HCWorldMusicDay.org.
