Bring your lawn chairs and love of great music to Rocky Woods Reservation in Medfield on May 19 to kick off the summer concert season at the first-ever Rock the Woods Music Festival.

Allman Brothers tribute band, The Peacheaters, will take the stage in the pavilion field as the headliner for an exciting outdoor afternoon of music. While bringing the music of the Allman Brothers Band to venues across the country over the past 20 years, The Peacheaters have achieved wide audience and critical acclaim as well as a large, devoted following. 

The Peacheaters will be joined by two fantastic openings acts. First, Arthur Terembula brings blues and ragtime guitar stylings to the stage, “the sounds of juke joints and city streets in the 1920's and 1930's…rewriting and interpreting the sounds of Charley Patton, Skip James, Robert Johnson, Blind Blake, Son House, and other various country blues figures.”

Next up will be bluegrass musicians Evan Murphy and Danny Erker, collectively known as Kings of Ghost Town. This local dynamic duo delivers “original American music, steeped in harmony singing, contemporary songwriting, and bluegrass instrumentation,” which has “a simple intimacy…a sense that nothing else really matters except the songs.” 

All seating is on the lawn by the Rocky Woods pavilion, blankets and lawn chairs are strongly encouraged. Local BBQ favorites RibPublic BBQ will be on hand, serving up food that rocks as much as the music does. Beer and snacks will also be available to purchase, no outside food is allowed. 

Rocky Woods is a 491-acre reservation located in Medfield and Dover, MA, and has been owned by The Trustees since 1942. The main entrance address is 38 Hartford Street, Medfield.

Gates open at Noon. Children under the age of 3 are free.  Ticket price includes parking and all-afternoon entrance for music. Tickets may be purchased in advance at thetrustees.org/rockywoodsevents.
