Live Music Festivals

There is nothing better than live music. True one can sit back and listen to volumes of music and performances on CD, but there is still something enlivening about hearing a live performance. Maybe its being able to not only hear but feel the crash of the cymbals or see the emotion on the faces of the performers. Across the country there has been an increase in music festivals, everything from bluegrass and country to Mozart Festivals. These festivals bring to a community added exposure and a chance for residents of these communities to embrace and host visitors from outside of their community. If you are wondering if there is a music festival you are missing out on check out this music festival finder to find local music festivals. For example we live in Pennsylvania, and I recently found out that Gettysburg hosts a bluegrass festival in May and August. What a fun weekend excursion to hear live music and visit historic Gettysburg and of course dine out at the local establishments. So if you are looking for a great weekend out or looking for a great gift idea for a musician , look for a local music festival and explore a new part of your community while at the same time experiencing live music.
