RJM & Friends Fest ~ Paisley Violin

Some of you folksters might remember the Winter Folk Fest that was popularized by Courtney Marie Andrews and the River Jones crew last year. If not, it was a great music festival, lasting all afternoon and well into the night that featured Phoenix’s best up-and-coming folk/indie musicians. This year, we present you with the RJM & Friends Fest at The Paisley Violin (1028 NW Grand Ave). All the acts you’ve come to know from River Jones Music will be there.

One dollar off each ticket goes to Ear Candy Charity, a Phoenix-based non-profit dedicated to providing kids access to music education. Plus, you can check out the music at The Color Group website.

Officially sponsored by Revolver Records and PhoenixTaco!
