Plant & Sing! Returns in 2014

Sylvester Manor is excited to announce that Martha Wainwright & Lucy Wainwright Roche will headline this year’s Plant & Sing Festival.  Opening for Martha will be Bluegrass sensation The Deadly Gentlemen hailing from Nashville and Boston, as well as five other critically acclaimed bands, and a collection of nationally recognized food writers, poets and thinkers.

Plant & Sing is a festival of bluegrass and traditional american music celebrating local food & community on Shelter Island, NY.

Each October at the Plant & Sing Festival at Sylvester Manor on Shelter Island, NY, people gather to plant garlic and harvest fall crops, transforming the fields and the work itself with festive songs, dances, recitations and meals.  After the work everyone kicks back for a world-class music festival on the expansive waterfront lawn of historic Sylvester Manor.

It’s the community harvest festival tradition made new, preserving old traditions and exploring how to create a new culture of food that is joyful, alive with people, and rooted in place.



October 10, 11 & 12
Main music event is Saturday October 11
October 10 and 12 are farming projects and yoga only.
