Sunday Mar 17, 2019 St. Patty's Day Party in the Park!
Mourning Glories (3:30pm - 4:30pm) is an old-time/Irish-trad/ghostly-gospel/folk-grass string band formed out of Irish sessions and community contradances in Gainesville, Florida. We are five old-hearted young people with a passion for preserving and performing traditional music and dance. We began as Fiona Bas, as an Irish session band in 2012. For nearly 3 years, we hosted an open Irish session the second Wednesday of every month at The Midnight Bar on South Main Street in Gainesville. Eventually Tony & Katrina's infectious love for old-time led us to include a set of old-time tunes in our repertoire. One thing led to another and we soon found ourselves hosting contradances and performing at special events such as The Alachua Conservation Trust's Octoberfest, the Swallowtail Farm Festival, the Kanapaha Crafty Beer Festival, and the Florida Folk Festival.
the Lilly Jane Band
Lilly Jane (2:30pm - 3:20pm) is trio of women and more with breathtaking harmonies who play a collection of stringed instruments, including guitar, banjo, and fiddle. Their repertoire is an eclectic blend of originals, traditional songs, and unusual covers.

“What a relaxing afternoon in the park under the beautiful trees with a pleasant breeze accompanying the sweet music of a dulcimer, banjo and fiddle. I am amazed at the talent this little town has hosted thanks to the High Springs Music in the Park series.”
