Suwannee at Home: Spirit Raiser

Article Contributed by Dreamspider Pu… | Published on Saturday, May 9, 2020

The Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park, in collaboration with Relix Magazine, is hosting Suwannee at Home: Spirit Raiser 2020. This virtual online festival will take place Friday-Sunday, May 15-17 and is intended to raise the spirits of our music community, to keep us connected to our beloved Suwannee, and to raise some funds for festival support staff.

As our fans, artists, and festival production teams are sheltering in place and dreaming about being at festivals at our favorite music venue, we wanted to do something to raise everyone’s spirits and the online festival Suwannee at Home: Spirit Raiser 2020 was born.

Artists are volunteering their time to participate in this online festival by performing live or sending in pre-recorded content from their shelter in place. The sets will air live on Zoom via Facebook and the Suwannee Spirit Raiser website and will range from brief cameos to longer 30 minutes slots, some with a Q and A.

Suwannee at Home: Spirit Raiser 2020 will be hosted by Suwanee Rising Event Co-Producers: Beth Judy (Suwannee Spring Reunion, Suwannee  Roots Revival) and Paul Levine (Hulaween, Purple Hatters Ball).

Live Oak Music and Art Foundation Inc, a 501c3 organization will collect and distribute any collected funds and will be the sole recipient of any merchandise sold.

Fans can also get involved by telling us what coming to a festival at the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park means to them. Folks are being encouraged to make a short video of themselves telling their Suwannee story through a poem, live art, straight story telling, or any other creative medium that inspires their thoughts about the park.
