HEADLINING ARTIST: Miles Nielsen and the Rusted Hearts
Led by free-wheeling frontman Miles Nielsen, The Rusted Hearts have been wowing audiences for years with the diversity of their sound, the tightness of their 4-part harmonies, and the quality of their songcraft. Equally comfortable in a compact 3-minute pop song and an epic 10-minute jam, the band has toured incessantly since their inception in 2011, amassing an army of hardcore followers that have dubbed themselves the Rusted Herd. Their new album “OHBAHOY” finds the band venturing into a sphere of Americana that feels both familiar and excitingly new. Tight drums, rich guitar tones, gorgeous woodwines, and sweeping harmonies provide the perfect complements to Nielsen’s immense storytelling gifts and impeccable vocals. The album’s name comes from an imaginary friend Nielsen had growing up, a fitting reminder as we get older to hold tightly to the noble ideals of freedom and creativity that seem so natural to us as children.
OPENING ARTIST: Ocala Symphony Orchestra
The Ocala Symphony Orchestra is one of Marion County’s premier performing arts organizations. A non-proft 501 (c)3 founded in 1975, the orchestra averages a dozen concerts throughout the year in front of nearly ten thousand area citizens.
