Music Festival celebrates 10th anniversary with homegrown Rusted Root

July 2009

Celebrating its 10th anniversary, the Allegheny County Music Festival, featuring Rusted Root, is a great getaway for families this Labor Day weekend. Families are encouraged to come early, enjoy the park and claim their spot on the lawn. The gates at the Hartwood Amphitheater open at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, September 6, 2009. The concert is scheduled to begin at 7:30 p.m.

A $20.00 per car donation is requested and will help to replenish the Allegheny County Music Festival Fund (ACMFF), which provides children and youth served by DHS with life-enriching items and opportunities otherwise unavailable through government funds.

Providing funding for dance and karate classes, music lessons, summer camp, and graduation expenses are just a few of the many ways that the ACMFF creates a sense of normalcy in the life of a vulnerable child or adolescent.

Please spread the word and join DHS to celebrate Labor Day and support this great fund!

Also, NASA engineers chose the Rusted Root hit Send Me On My Way as “wake-up” music for the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity.
