The Black Potatoe Music Festival is this weekend Clinton, New Jersey. The festival has gotten bigger this year, now boasting six stages at four different venues in historic Clinton.
Not only will festival attendees be exposed to the 100+ acts that will grace the stages this year, but Main Street will be closed down to allow pedestrians to walk along the bridge and take in the views of the picturesque Red Mill Museum. This landmark site is a former mill that produced numerous goods and was once an active limestone quarry. The festival is held on the museum grounds along the banks of the South Branch of the Raritan River, at the base of the quarry’s 150 foot limestone walls.
Black Potatoe is in its sixteenth year, and is hoping for its biggest turnout yet. The lineup includes The Smithereens, Buckwheat Zydeco, Jim Weider's Percolator, Ellis Paul, Chris Barron, Donna Jean Godchaux Band, Edwin McCain, Shawn Mullins, Jimmy Vivino presents Butterfield Revisited, and hometown favorites The Matt Angus Thing.
