—  With the help of Grammy award winning trumpet player Taylor Haskins, the Westport Festival Day for Aug. 10 is lining up some great afternoon musical entertainment at the Ballard Park Pavilion.

Taylor & Friends will begin with Folk-Rock-Jazz music for kids young and old. The Camp Dudley Boys Choir, under the direction of James Mayo will next take the stage, followed by Joan Crane and Steve Feinbloom presenting blues with finger-style acoustic guitar and upright bass. Staber & Chasnoff will then perform bluegrass-folk on acoustic guitar and mandolin followed by Wadhams Waddlers with bluegrass-folk.

“These are all local musicians to the Westport area,” Haskins said.

Open mic will fill the stage in between as each musical group changes out for their performance. Pre-registration for open mic is necessary. You can preregister by the food token table at 11 a.m. the day of the festival.
