Family Meal


You can't live on music alone ...

TFDI Fest is more than just music. It is about creating new ways to connect with each other. We believe there is as much power in bringing people together through food as there is in music and so again this year we will have a Family Meal. Together, guests and artists will sit at tables and enjoy the beauty in sharing each other’s company over a meal before a night of music begins.

This part of the weekend is unique and something we know you do not want to miss being part of on Saturday. There is no added cost to you as Family Meal is included in your Festival ticket and just one of the events that’s makes TFDI Fest a truly memorable weekend for us all.

The bar will be open, so you may purchase your favorite thirst quenchers!

 Film Screening & Q&A

Together with TFDI Fest artist Amber Rubarth we will watch a screening of the movie American Folk on Saturday afternoon followed by a Q & A with Amber.

When their plane from Los Angeles to New York is grounded on the morning of September 11, 2001, strangers Elliott (Joe Purdy) and Joni (Amber Rubarth) are unexpectedly thrust together amidst the chaos of that historic day. With little in common but both needing to get to NYC urgently, they accept help from Joni's family friend Scottie (Krisha Fairchild) who lends the duo a rusty old 1972 Chevy Van. The shock and stress of 9/11 quickly threatens to derail their cross country journey until the pair discover what they do have in common: a love for old folk songs. Armed with a pile of guitars left in the van from Scottie’s touring days, Elliott and Joni raise their voices together (and with those they meet on the road), re-discovering the healing nature of music and bearing witness to a nation of people who, even while mourning, manage to lift each other up in the wake of tragedy.

With a refreshing gentleness and beauty, AMERICAN FOLK lovingly chronicles the spaces between the suffering and fear, where music has the power to connect. Musicians Joe Purdy and Amber Rubarth give nuanced and thoughtful performances, with voices that are uplifting and achingly gorgeous. Filmed over 3,500 miles in 14 states, AMERICAN FOLK serves as a love letter to the natural beauty of America, to the style of music that has shepherded us through historically tough times and to the kindness of all of the "folk" that make America what it is.

Inside the Song


Songwriters deconstructed…

Inside the Song is a panel of 4 of our national touring songwriters where they walk us through the process of writing one of their songs and then perform that song for us.
