Tarpestry Tour: MerleFest

We’re excited to be headed back to one of the oldest and premier music festivals in the country – MerleFest!  April 27th – April 30th.  This will be our second year vending at Merlefest and we can’t wait to be back to see the kind folks and great pickin’ once again! Last year our favorite shows were: John Prine, The Waybacks, Brandi Carlile, The Wood Brothers, Dave Rawlings Machine, and Love Canon…just to name a few.

It usually rains during the weekend of Merlefest and you know what that means…soggy, wet grass.  So make sure to bring your Rugged Tarpestry our come swing by our booth and pick one up!  You can wear it like a poncho when the storm hits in the middle of your favorite show.  Then lay it down on the lawn for a dry seat.  If you’re headed to MerleFest, please stop by our booth and say hi!

Tarpestry Festival Tour 2017

It’s our favorite time of year again – music festival season!  Every Spring through Fall we hit the road and set up our traveling booth across the country.  We have a great lineup this year, concentrating mostly on the East Coast but heading out West for Telluride Bluegrass Festival. Tarpestrys are the perfect companion for music festivals because you can use it at camp AND take it to shows!  If you’re headed to any of these festivals please stop by our booth and say hi!
