Written by Stan Rogers Folks Festival founder and producer, Troy Greencorn, the book shares an in-depth, behind-the-scenes look at Stanfest’s rich and award-winning history.

“While COVID-19 keeps us from gathering in person, this book allows us to return to all those magical weekends of music and fellowship,” Troy explains. “Nearly 800 of the world’s finest artists have flowed through our tiny town and our lives are so much richer for it. 600 volunteers pull off this annual miracle each year and that is worth celebrating. The world needs some more smiles and positivity. We are delivering it within these pages.”

Stanfest has been a launchpad for many of our most established artists. Matt Andersen, Charlie A’Court, Irish Mythen, Dave Gunning and so many more got their start there and have gone on to play the biggest stages worldwide. This book traces the arc of this amazing festival by sharing Canso’s story, the story of a thousand citizens achieving the impossible, the stories of over 800 artists who have performed over the years. This is an inspiring, soul-lifting tale that is an essential read for fans of East Coast music.”Andy MacLean, CEO, ECMA
