Pumpkin Painting, Face Painting, Halloween Costume Contests
(pronounced “WIH*dod”), weaves folk,
rock, rhythm and mysticism into a mixed up cup
of spicy tea; a raspy voice that is sometime sweet
as bubblegum, some growls thrown in for good measure,
a big scoop of longing and pop sensible, Nashville
songwriting. Widad has battled some demons. Not
the demons of drugs, abuse or self-loathing. Along
her travels through musicianship she has had to
determine whether to conform to the prosaic formula
of the singer-songwriter or prominently display
the middle finger of the washed-up “good-ol-days”
rocker. Thankfully, she has chosen neither. Instead,
she mixes the melancholy mystery of life’s
endless questions with the joy and simple pleasure
of answers when they are found.
The self proclaimed “Experimental
Funk” band Dr. Slothclaw is a full frontal assault
on the senses. Their live performances are packed
full of energy, improv, and a constant groove that
brings listeners to their feet, and leaves them begging
for more. From their funky, psychedelic jams, to their
Frank Zappa inspired songs, Dr. Slothclaw has been
gaining attention from fans and promoters alike in
the Tri-state Area of Southern Pennsylvania, Maryland,
and West Virginia. In February 2012, Dr. Slothclaw
won the Tri-State Indie Jam Band of the Year Award.
Enormous bass riffs, shrieking guitars, and non-stop
drums mingle with humorous lyrics and high energy
performances, making a night with Dr. Slothclaw a
night to remember. Keep an eye out for their debut
album "What's the Buzzing Noise?" releasing
May, 5 2012.
an early age, Darry Miller's life has been filled
with music. His mom took him to his dad's gigs as
a baby and when he got his first drum set at three,
he showed an intuitive ability to play. It wasn't
long before he was sitting in with his dad's band,
cutting his teeth on rock and roll. As he got older,
he began playing around with his dad's digital recording
equipment and spent his formative years alone in
the basement with it, experimenting with the layering
of sounds, tones, harmonies and beats, igniting
a true passion for music and an understanding of
how powerful it can be. http://www.darrymillermusic.com
earnestness and conviction, Lost Companion blends
folk, blues, country, and bluegrass, creating his
own version of Americana.
Lost Companion was formed in 2011 as a solo project
by singer/songwriter Joe Gualtier, co-founder of the
Folk/Americana group West of the Shore. Moving forward
as a solo project, Lost Companion leans on early blues
and roots music for inspiration, and brings along
the raw dirt and grime that comes with it. Taking
past experiences from the road, Lost Companion paints
a picture of America that is both heartfelt and lonesome,
filled with the joys and troubles we can all understand.
approach to music is that of an artist inspired
by each passing nuance and minute detail. She admits,
“Life is too complex to even begin to understand,
so I make sense of life through song.” She
now writes almost daily, finding a place for her
unique voice in a variety of different Sarah Blacker
styles. “I always believe the songs that are
meant to stick around will stay, and some will fall
by the wayside,” Sarah explains, “Some
songs might find their life-span to be but a sketch,
and others may disappear for a while, and then resurface.
But some just write themselves in a few minutes,
and stick hard. Some just want to stick around.”
Freeman claims to have been bitten by a Were Wolf
in July of 2006 obviously causing him to become one
as well. According to him this contributed greatly
to the Project's existence, giving Freeman an outlet
for his howling muses which frequently refer to the
pains and pleasures of life.

singer/songwriters quest for fame and fortune so dominates
their reasoning that lost in the pursuit, is the music
itself. Brittany Opperman, a talented young artist
from Gettysburg, PA is so grounded by love of GOD,
family, and country that composing and performing
is as natural as inhaling and exhaling.

in 2009, the RJ Moody Experience is becoming more
and more popular everyday. What started out as a
small project and a division of a still growing
Punk Rock Band, RJ Moody branched out and poured
heart and soul into music. The project's fans demanded
more and more, and thats when the RJ Moody Experience
was born and set out for a bigger horizon.
It sounded like a great
idea: a music festival at a winery. Featuring
19 bands for $15, it was a bargain and all proceeds
would benefit The Children’s Miracle Network.
Fall Music Festival 3 turned out to be beyond
great and a bargain at any price. Clear your

Music Festival 4, hosted again by MyRuralRadio.com!
My Rural Radio Fall Music Fest is a family affair.
Owners Michael Males and Trampas Ferree are
relatives with a common love for music, community
and good times. MRR.com was born when they tired
of hearing the same old songs on commercial
radio and seeing the same old cover bands at
local clubs. As part-time touring musicians
and fans of York’s bustling open-mic scene,
they knew that the plethora of local talent
was making great music and being marginalized.
My Rural Radio.com plays original, unsigned,
independent musicians in every genre. You would
be grievously mistaken if you think MRR is for
country or folk artists alone and this year’s
festival proved it.
The festival opened with the national anthem,
sung by SWHS student Morgan La Fave. Morgan
performed admirably on stage 3 later, but she
cleared stage 1 to make room for The Infidels.
Yes, The Infidels, a punk rock band with metal
tendencies was the opening act at My Rural Radio’s
festival! Other acts included pop, funk and
rock bands. What the show did not include was
boring, typical songs played by people with
all the trappings of a musician but not the
