CEDAR CITY – Groovefest is dedicated to showcasing American music, whether it is blues, folk, country, jazz or an experimental fusion of various genres; music that captures the listener and comes from the soul.
The creative forces behind Groovefest are Tim Cretsinger and Lisa Cretsinger, owners of the Groovacious record store in Cedar City. The festival has grown by leaps and bounds and, now in its 11th year, has expanded to a week-long event from June 24 to 30.
The 2013 musical lineup features Afro-Zep, Contino, Courtney Marie Andrews, D. Bess, Dirty Bourbon River Show, Levee Town, Loose Connection, Melody & Tyler, Ned Evett & Triple Double, Otter Creek, Swamp Cabbage, Victor and Penny, Water Tower, Woody Pines, Bila Gaana and Rian Basilio & The Roosters. A variety of workshops and special performances focus on everything from music and literature to spirituality. The bulk of festival activities will be held during the day at Main Street Park in Cedar City. A detailed schedule can be found here.
“The musicians that perform here are only half of what make Groovefest what it is,” Lisa Cretsinger said. “Groovefest is also a community of like-minded people that love music and only want other people to enjoy it with them. Groovefest is about art and the sharing of art.”
The festival is free to attend, though some activities may have fees. Donations are always accepted. Pets are allowed as long as they are kept on a leash and handled responsibly. More information about Groovefest can be found on the festival website.
