Upper Valley Music Fetival returns to Turners Falls for fifth year

GEORGE LENKER, Special to the Republican, July 23, 2015-There’s nothing wrong with sharing the wealth, and with the wealth of musical talent here in the Pioneer Valley, it’s been great to see Greenfield and Turner’s Falls (in Montague) trade turns at holding the Upper Valley Music Festival over its five years.

This year, the festival returns to Turners Falls after a great year in Greenfield last year. The festival, started by Tommy Byrnes in 2011 as a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society, was originally held in Greenfield, then moved to Turners Falls in 2012 and 2013. It switched back to Greenfield last year due to a scheduling glitch, but now finds itself back in Turners Falls again.

But no matter where it is held, people seem to love the all-day affair, which this year will feature more that 30 area acts, from Irish dancers to Boston based rock bands. The festival will begins at noon on July 25 and admission is $15.
