This weekend, Montage Mountain in Scranton, PA, is playing host to the 5th Anniversary Celebration of The Peach Music Festival. With the likes of Trey Anastasio Band, The String Cheese Incident, Gov’t Mule, The Claypool Lennon Delirium, Umphrey’s McGee, and moe. hitting the stage all weekend long, it’s sure to be a rockin’ and memorable weekend. Take a look at some of our photos from Friday including highlights from the highly anticipated The Allman Brothers Family Incident with The String Cheese Incident and ABB members Butch, Jaimoe, Oteil & Marc, along with Bruce Katz & Scott Sharrard.
It all started when a much younger Jackie dove into her parents’ record collection, grabbed that trippy Magical Mystery Tour album, and played “Strawberry Fields” over and over again until it was engrained into her soul. She grew up on the dreams and stories of Simon and Garfunkel, “Bleeker Street” being one of her favorites, the seduction of The Doors, Van Morrison, because “Brown Eyed Girl” is definitely her song, and the likes of Jefferson Airplane, The Who, Jimi Hendrix…you get the picture. It may not show on the outside, but Jackie has a hippie heart, and that reflects in her musical tastes today. While some of her favorites may or may not be jam bands, her taste in music feeds into many genres. From alternative, Brit, and indie rock - OK, maybe all rock - to pop, to rap, to electronic, she loves it all. As a northerner, she thought she would never understand country until she found herself on a Georgia farm in cowboy boots watching Luke Bryan shake it for her- yeah, she got that. She is a chronic wanderluster, she doesn't believe in guilty pleasures, enjoys a great Moscow Mule, and is an absolute music festival fanatic- you’ll find her wherever the music takes her.
