Maplewoodstock Day 2: Sister Sparrow, Turkuaz on July 14

On Sunday, July 14, Maplewoodstock will present the modern soul sounds of  Sister Sparrow and The Dirty Birds. Turkuaz, covering a range of sounds in festival funk fashion, will close the show.

NOTE: Schedule subject to change. If weather interrupts the schedule we pick up the schedule as per the “clock.” In other words, if it pours rain from 4 pm to 5:45, we pick up the schedule with whatever band is scheduled to be playing at 5:45. However, we have a covered stage, so light or moderate rain won’t stop us.

Last minute updates to the schedule (due to weather or other factors) will be announced in real-time on our Twitter channel —
