Our 2016 Headliners and Featured Acts

Saturday headliner:  Railroad Earth

Combining elements of bluegrass, rock and roll, jazz, celtic and more, NJ-based Railroad Earth has kept audiences dancing since forming in 2001.
Guitars, violins, mandolins, drums, and bass come together in a mix of Americana-flavored rock and roll.  Railroad Earth’s music is driven by the remarkable songs of front-man, Todd Sheaffer, and is delivered with seamless arrangements and superb musicianship courtesy of all six band members.

Featured Artist Maya Azucena

Brooklyn’s Maya Azucena graced our stage in 2010 and is back by popular demand.
A multi-award winning indie soul rockstar, she is known for making music that uplifts the soul.  In 2015, Maya toured to Haiti, South Africa, India and Russia among her U.S. concerts. Azucena is currently on the cusp of her newest album, “Unleash Me,” which sounds like "a female Bruno Mars, if Bruno sang like Chaka.”
Maya will play a 7:00 pm set towards the end of Day 1 of Maplewoodstock 2016.

Featured Artist Nicole Atkins

Internationally acclaimed American musician Nicole Atkins is a rare artist whose timeless songwriting and raw, emotional voice spans the ages. The miasma of faded glamour and nostalgic pop noir of her critically lauded d├ębut album, Neptune City (2007), secured her place in Rolling Stone’s “Top 10 Artists To Watch,” where they praised her “voice full of longing and Loretta Lynn elegance.”
Nicole will set the stage for our festival’s ending with her 6:45 pm set towards the end of Day 2 of Maplewoodstock 2016.
