2014 Festival Headline Artists:
CHAD & JEREMY
The Mount Dora Music Festival proudly announces international recording artists CHAD & JEREMY will headline the 17th Annual Music Festival, February 20 – 23, 2014. The live, one-night only performance ‘An Evening With CHAD & JEREMY’ will be presented Saturday, February 22nd, 7:30 p.m. at the Mount Dora Community Center and feature some all-time favorites and new releases.
Chad Stuart and Jeremy Clyde garnered eleven US hit singles and released seven classic albums from 1964 to 1968. They became a sensation in America by riding the wave of the British Invasion, chalking up seven Top 40 hits including Summer Song, Yesterday's Gone, Willow Weep for Me, and Distant Shores. Since then, their music has been re-released on countless albums and CDs worldwide. Read more »
The Mount Dora Music Festival proudly announces legendary recording artist Leon Redbone will headline Friday night’s Showcase Concert at the 17th Annual Mount Dora Music Festival, February 20-23, 2014. ‘An Evening with Leon Redbone’ features a repertoire of tunes from the turn-of-the-20th century, flapper-era ditties, Depression-age ragtime, and World War II folk-jazz.
Dressed in his trademark Fedora and sunglasses -- a style as unique and distinct as his foggy baritone voice -- Redbone’s low-key vaudeville-style live performances showcase his mastery of acoustic guitar. With a music repertoire that ranges from artists such as Bob Dylan to Jellyroll Morton to Eddy Arnold, Redbone adds to his musical mix a diverse range of songs including My Walking Stick, Lazybones, Marie, Up A Lazy River, and Polly Wolly Doodle.
