(Center Moriches, NY) — For the second year in a row, Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck will be presenting Bradstock, a two-day music festival that will be taking place on September 1-2. Live acoustic music will be performed on September 1 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. and again on Sunday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Now in its 19th year, Bradstock is a two-day music festival featuring the best musical acts performing Americana, bluegrass, blues, reggae, jams, funk, rock and jazz. Among those who will be performing include Miles To Dayton, Stop Making Sense, Dave Amram, Easy Chief, Noah’s Arc, The Electrix, The Jerry McDonald Experience and Funkin’ A. In addition, there will be a Poetry stage featuring the area’s finest and most diverse poets and a Folk and Songwriters’ stage featuring the best local musical talent.

Tickets are $45, which includes admission and beverages. For $125, concertgoers will also receive access to the brand-new deck and backstage beer garden, a limited-edition Platinum Chief T-shirt and mug and overnight camping (advance reservations required).

Part of the ticket sales will go to benefit Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck. Last year’s Bradstock raised $10,000 for the camp, $2,000 of which was donated in the memory of Kevin “K.C.” Cowan, who was the brother-in-law of Bridget Costello, Director, Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck. The money will be used to purchase musical instruments for the campers, pay for a musical therapist and host live musical performances for the campers.

Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck is a resident summer camp serving children and young adults ages 6-21 with both physical and developmental special needs. Its mission is to help these children to achieve equality, dignity, and maximum independence through a safe and quality program of camping, recreation, and education. Throughout the program, campers participate in many activities, such as arts and crafts, talent shows, cook-outs, swimming and boating.
