A new music festival is coming to Western New York that will merge country vibes with outdoor activities. The inaugural “Howl in the Hills” festival will be hosted on the grounds of Holland Speedway on Saturday, September 4th. Howl in the Hills will be headlined by country-rock legends, Pure Prairie League. PurePrairie League will perform iconic hits, including Aimee, with the rolling hills of Holland, NY as a backdrop. Now in their 5th decade, Pure Prairie League continues to influence the new generation of country-rockers, including Keith Urban, CountingCrows, and Wilco. The full-day line-up of music will also include Driftwood and rising country music star, Cody Webb. Driftwood, a long-time regional favorite from Binghamton, NY will bring its working-class americana/folk sound to the festival, while South Carolina native Cody Webb will entertain the fans with his unique brand of high-energy country. The Howl in the Hills Festival will also feature Western, NY favorites, and Fuzzy and the Rustbelts. Fuzzy and the Rustbelts were winners of the 2020 WYRK Taste of Country Riser Competition and a finalist in the 2021 Band TogetherBuffalo Showcase. The festival will also feature a very special Belle Starr All-Star Tribute! The Howl in the Hills Festival will take advantage of its open green space to feature vendors and outdoor recreation activities. From axe throwing to wood carving, there will be plenty of activities and entertainment for the whole family. Including Performances From: Pure Prairie League From their beginnings in mid-Sixties Ohio as a group of friends playing cover tunes to the present-day unit featuring founding member/pedal-steel innovator John David Call, veteran bassist Mike Reilly, propulsive drummer Scott Thompson and guitar ace Donnie Clark, PURE PRAIRIE LEAGUE continues to embellish the rich 43-year history of one of Country-Rock’s pioneering forces. As one reviewer recently wrote: “PPL’s sound combines sweet memories with edgy, contemporary muscle. Their vocals are as strong as Kentucky moonshine and the musicianship and performance skills are as sharp as a straight razor”. Their eponymous first album – featuring the Norman Rockwell/Saturday Evening Post cover that introduced fans to PPL’s trademark cowpoke “Sad Luke” – has been hailed as a “major early influence in the emerging popularity of Country-Rock music”. Their second effort, the multi-platinum “Bustin’ Out” brought us the Craig Fuller-penned classic “Amie”, along with other gems of the genre. With “Two Lane Highway”, nine more albums, and countless shows, a legacy has been forged and enriched during the ‘70s and 80’s, highlighting contributions from several noteworthy members, including original co-founder George Ed Powell, Cincinnati’s legendary Goshorn Brothers, Country Hall of Famers Gary Burr and Vince Gill, award-winning writer Jeff Wilson (3 Top-20 singles) and a host of other guest appearances from Chet Atkins, Johnny Gimble, Emmy Lou Harris, David Sanborn, Eagle Don Felder, Nicolette Larson, and many more. Now in their fifth decade, Pure Prairie League continues to lead the way for the new generation of Country/Rockers such as Keith Urban, Nickel Creek, Wilco, Counting Crows and so many others that cite PPL as a major influence. As crisp and clean as spring water and as comfortable as a well-worn cowboy shirt, Pure Prairie League still brings it all back home. Driftwood When Driftwood released its first full-length album, Rally Day, recorded in their hometown of Binghamton, a unique sound transpired that reflected not only the working-class ethos of an upstate New York town, but a coalescing of identity, influence, and uninhibited musical spirit. “It’s sometimes tough to keep any sort of focus on style or sound when you have three different songwriters,” guitarist Dan Forsyth conceded. Longtime friend and banjoist Joe Kollar offer, “I consider our sound to be more of an attitude and an approach – the result of all of our influences in a completely open musical forum where the only stipulation is to create it from the heart.” “Really Driftwood is a song-based group,” fiddler Claire Byrne added incisively. And even though they come from different directions, the three founding members – along with bassist Joey Arcuri – tend to end up at the same place. That unity, as well as the joy derived from playing together, can be heard throughout City Lights. It takes them on a familiar road and serendipitous evolution, replete with folk, old-time, country, punk, and rock, depending on their personal moods and their songs’ needs.
