Heady Vermont is excited to announce the upcoming Harvest Farm Jam and New England Cannabis Guide Launch, scheduled for Saturday, September 28th from noon – 6pm at Brattleboro’s historic Bordertown Farm, and sponsored by area hemp and CBD store Vermont Hempicurean.

This event’s Southern Vermont location – and proximity to neighboring cities and New England states – draws in a regional audience, coming from Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Maine, and New York.

The event will feature workshops on growing, making and processing, demonstrations, flower and concentrate testing, a genetics swap, exhibitors, food trucks, live music including a set by Rob Compa of Dōpapod with members of Kung Fu, Meadow and Mowgli of Melting Gnomads, a beer tent and designated consumption areas.

The Harvest Farm Jam is also the official launch of The New England Cannabis Guide, a comprehensive, full-color magazine showcasing New England cannabis businesses and attractions, and aimed at canna-curious consumers visiting or living in the Northeast. Learn more about the guide here – we’ll be launching a dedicated website soon at headynewengland.com.

Thanks to our major event and Guide sponsors: Vermont Hempicurean, Sarabia Holistic, Coyote River Hemp Company and MCR Labs.

Ticket prices: $20 for general public, $10 for Heady Vermont members.

Music

2:00PM: Meadow and Mowgli of The Melting Nomads

Meadow Eliz is an intuitive singer and song writer, as well as dancer-artist-creator-jeweler- from the Adirondacks of New York. She has recorded various solo and collaborative works as well as two albums with a duo project called Swimming in Speakers. She lent her vocals to Lucid for three albums before the forming of The Melting Nomads. As a statement of purpose, she has expressed that “the development of an innate and beauteous flow of intention is the real underlying proof of the success of our existence”. If perhaps the moment is all we may know – the conscious choice to truly experience the fleeting yet eternal resonance of such can be ushered with the sonic purity of an earnest call unto the universe with song.

Mowgli Giannitti is an active and diverse artist, trained in jazz and classical practice and theory, currently working with musicians whose careers span the globe and industry, and engaged in an extreme range of styles and sounds including Opera, Jazz, Jam Rock, Contemporary Classical, Folk, Funk, Bluegrass, Old-Time, Celtic, Latin, and Free Jazz. Mowgli attended Bennington College with a focus in contemporary composition, jazz bass, and classical voice, where he studied under Allen Shawn, Kitty Brazelton, Michael Bisio, Bruce Williamson, Nick Brooke, and Thomas Bogdan. He has since pursued further studies under composer/author W.A. Matthieu.

Mowgli currently performs primarily in the northeastern United States as a bassist/vocalist in the bands The Melting Nomads, The Terrible Mountain String Band, Satyrdagg, The Heavy Nettles, and as a solo artist, but can often be found as a substitute for just about anything. He is currently working on a soon-to-be-released EP of original songs, performed by Satyrdagg, a slew of jazz and folk arrangements, and a long-form composition for strings, horns, SATB, and rhythm section titled Visarjana.

4:00 PM: Rob Compa of Dōpapod with members of Kung Fu

After nearly a decade of non-stop touring with an improvisational rock band, dōpapod, Rob Compa and his bandmates took a step back for 2018.  During this time, Rob chose to focus on songs.  As he navigated his own writing and unique topical content, Rob discovered a creative thread: it’s not all up to one person.  The relatable characters of his tunes speak honestly among Rob’s signature complex chord structures and fearless melodies.  These songs will be released in 2019 on Rob’s first solo record.  In the meantime, he is flexing his musical muscles performing live, both solo and as a part of other projects.
