Our 2024 Featured Artist

Connor Simon is a part-time artist, part-time activist living in Honesdale, Pennsylvania. He has been an avid analogue photographer and filmmaker since 2008, dabbling in Absurdism, Dada, and Surrealism through the use of antique and alternative photo processes.

“Somewhere out there, there’s an old videotape of me begging my dad to let me use the home movie camera. I think if he had, I might not have wound up where I am now. Parents, let your kids play with your camera sometimes – otherwise they’ll wind up like me; staying up late in makeshift darkrooms, ordering weird chemicals on the internet, and inviting all kinds of strange people in for concept portraits.”

Connor is a regular collaborator with the Wayne County Arts Alliance and holds his Master’s Degree in English with a focus in Film and Media Preservation.

Connor’s body of work includes portraiture, street photography, color science experimentation, nonlinear film-making, poetry, and foraging.

Deke Dickerson & the Whippersnappers – Deke Dickerson has devoted his long career to keeping America’s roots music alive while interjecting new creativity into genres of music that flourished in decades previous. Deke & the Whippersnappers will also be our featured act at the Late Night Ramble directly after the Main Stage closes @ Here & Now Brewing.

Paul Rishell & Annie Raines – For 30 years Paul Rishell & Annie Raines have been hailed as one of the world’s best blues duos. They have recorded 6 albums together including the W.C. Handy Award-winning Moving to the Country (2000), and received numerous award nominations from the Blues Foundation. They have performed and recorded with John Sebastian, Susan Tedeschi, Pinetop Perkins and Rory Block. They have opened for Ray Charles, Dr. John, and Little Feat, and performed on international radio and TV shows including Late Night with Conan O’Brien and A Prairie Home Companion. They continue to perform American roots music and their own compositions at festivals, concert halls, and clubs all over the world.

Roberta Faceplant – Roberta Faceplant is a honky tonk hurricane with a voice that blends the raw, rock n’ roll grit of Janis Joplin and the whimsical, western smoothness of Patsy Cline.
