Lost Art Music Festival, Foxhall Resort 2022

Posted by Liz and John Attaway, 6/27/22

Turning into Fox Hall Resort, carefully manicured, lush, green grass spreads out before you as the brown picked fence rolls by the car window. The sweeping Fox Hall Resort was the beautiful backdrop for this year’s Lost Art Music Festival. The festival sits on one of the many green spaces, just steps from the VIP cabin, and just down the road from the main club house with amenities like a bar, restaurant, and infinity pool that looks like it is falling into the lake behind it. Back down the road, Lost Art Music Festival’s sounds fill the air with warmth, Americana, folk, big band, rock, 90s sound, country, and everything in between. Grab a shady spot, comfy chair, and stay awhile.

The first thing we got into was The Lone Bellow BBQ and Wild Heaven Beer Pairing Inner Circle Artist Experience. This is what makes Lost Art Music Festival truly special are the up-close and personal experiences you can get with your favorite bands and brands. This one paired three Wild Heaven Beers with BBQ from Chef Mike Lasage (of Drunk & Lucky Social Club). The pairings were Euro-Style Pilsner paired with the Fresh, Herb Salad, Garden Beer Season 9 Saison paired with charred corn, and Kersenrood Barrel-aged Flanders Red Ale with Ki Ten Dang Thai Style BBQ’D Chicken Drums. They were all great, the Pilsner is dry and goes with the lemongrass in the salad, the charred corn’s earthiness goes with the mellow Saison, while the vinegary, tart Kersenrood paired with the spicy, savory of the sauce on the chicken. The chicken itself was tender, juicy, and perfectly cooked, phenomenal! The Kersenrood is a new beer by Wild Heaven not yet available in the tap room, so that was a treat. Even though it said “red ale” it drank more like a funky sour with tons of balsamic vinegar on the back of the throat. Worth mentioning is the best quote from the pairing, “Saison is the duct tape of the beer world,” Mike Lasage.

Then, The Lone Bellow came in casually and played a few songs like Georgia Wheel. They are a band out of Nashville with roots from Georgia, Zach Williams is from Acworth, Brian Elmquist is from Sanderson, GA and Kanene Pipkin is from Virginia. Their sound is truly Americana with hints of country and rock, but this was an acoustic set with heart. At the end, they stuck around to chat with experience goers, take pictures, and answer questions. They are some of the nicest, down-to-earth people!

Lost Art Music Festival also has a stellar VIP experience! We beat the heat with an air-conditioned cabin full of tables to relax and came with three drinks to enjoy during the festival. They also had indoor, air-conditioned bathrooms which were much needed on the hot day. Outside, they had a beautiful, covered porch with rocking chairs, great for sitting in the shade and listening to the music below. On the side, the cabin had a large stone deck with tables and a fireplace. Plus, down near the stage, they had a covered VIP area that was slightly raised and gave us a great view over the crowd.

We also enjoyed several acts on the main stage like Rayland Baxter, Southern Avenue, and of course our new friends, The Lone Bellow. First up was Southern Avenue, they were a large band with everything from an amazing guitar and drummer to fun singer! They were a mix of funk, jazz, rock, and all came together with all types of instruments to create a big band sound. We must give a shout out to the amazing drummer who impressed us with her skill!

Next up was The Lone Bellow. We witness their acoustic set in the artist experience but with the entire band that includes drums and plug-in acoustic guitar, they were a mix of country, rock, with lots of drum and guitar to round out the songs. All three main members of the band take turns singing and write their own music. Each of them had their own specific style and personality, which made it fun to watch. There’s something for everyone to like about them.

Finally, was Rayland Baxter. Dressed in a plain white t-shirt, he started out country, switched to rock, and back and forth. Something that we really liked about Rayland Baxter and his band was the 90s grungy reverb on some of the songs. We’re big early 90’s rock fans and enjoyed every minute of it.

As the sun went behind the trees, the stage fell into the shadow. The lights coming from the stage could be seen brighter and swirled around the ground on the people standing up front. A coolness came over the green. That’s it for this year’s Lost Art. See you next year!

Candler Park Music Festival 2022

Posted by Liz and John Attaway, 6/9/22

The faint sound of music in the distance moves through the air and beats in harmony with the swaying trees. You’re mesmerized. Laughter can be heard as you near the gates as throngs of people weave in-and-out of the lines to get in to see where the sound is coming. On either side of you, artists have lined up with their clothing, artwork, wares, and even vinyl to woo you into buying before the show. That’s when you come into an open clearing where you finally come face-to-face with the sound, It’s Candler Park Music Festival.

As you bob through the crowd, children play on small blankets, while there’s an older gentleman nodding his head, and to his left a beautiful woman sways to-and-fro as the beats move her. The lights from the stage create strange patterns on the ground, a dance of blue, red, and green. In the VIP area, the audience crowds the sky deck to get a view of all the fun below or sit at round, white tables in the shade. But the photo pit is the sweet spot. Sandwiched between the artist and the fan, you see the electricity, the love, the desire for both to walk away with smiles on their faces after a good show. There’s nothing like it!

Candler Music Festival has been around a while, so the ease of getting in and enjoyment is high here. While we were there, we saw two great acts, Yonder Mountain String Band and the electric Grace Potter. These acts couldn’t be more different. Yonder Mountain String Band is a country and bluegrass band that remained mostly acoustic with fiddles, bass, acoustic guitars, banjos, that harmonize so well together. They take turns singing and each member brings their own style and flair to the band.

Then there is Grace Potter. Someone we’ve never seen but heard of in the past, and we were blown away by her energy, her pizzazz for her music, and electricity around her. You could tell she loved it all! One part rock, other pop with some country mixed in, this singer songwriter has a little bit for everyone. She plays the piano, the guitar, and even if you don’t think you’ll enjoy her music or her genre, the show itself is worth the ticket. It’s high energy, fun, and keeps you dancing the entire night. We’d love to see her again just to see what she does next.

Whether you’re into rock, country, jam, Candler Park Music Festival has it all. Browse the artist market, check out the food and drink vendors, buy some vinyl or a t-shirt, hang out on the lawn, try a Scofflaw, or if you’re VIP make sure to take a trip up to the Skydeck! See you next year!

It’s a revival of the soul.”
