At the first chords the river ripples around your feet, and then they repeat, spread and deepen, and you’re in. The guitar sets its theme and flows, the current draws you on, hypnotically, you’re in and you’re moving and when you come up to the surface it’s all the same and every fraction of a second it’s changing. One subtlety builds on another. His voice and his playing become one force. You don’t want it to ever stop.

He usually kicks off a set with his own, “Sweet Jellyroll,” or “Get it While it’s Hot.

Mike offers up Finger-Pickin'-Good Acoustic Roots & Country Blues.

It's like being on the front porch listening to Jorma Kaukonen, Jerry Garcia, and Taj Mahal belting out traditional songs & pickin' their derrieres off!!!

 

"...I happened to catch Mike Herman in Hudson, NY last night.
He has always been a stellar finger picking, Piedmont-style blues guitarist, but I was struck by the increased authority of his singing.  He has been a solo performer for a few years now, following the breakup of the much beloved duo, The Hellhounds, and his "woodshedding" over numerous gigs in that span has clearly paid off. ..." - Mark Drnek

"I'm hearing Bob Dylan, Jorma Kaukonen, Leon Redbone, & some Guthrie when I'm listening to this guy!" ~ A New Friend & Fan Found at the Binghamton Mets Game, May 25th

"...superb fingerpicking guitarist...."
Rit Sheridan - The Blueshound

"...definitely in touch with the Blues Gods..." Dirty Linen

This artist is one of the unknown treasures of our Hudson Valley. Or known to too few. You won’t forget hearing those first few notes, feeling that music rise and wrap around you. The first time I heard him I thought about Philip Glass, the subtle, hypnotic urgency of the repetitive back-chords. But Herman brings an enormous warmth and humor to his art. He’s so deeply accomplished that he’s possessed; his music rides him and he takes us along for that ride. Effortlessly. You don’t want to miss hearing this guy. Any chance you get.

The man is sexy. Lithe and deliberate, there’s something muscular and taut and catlike about the way he moves and the way he sits, composed and intent, one leg crossed and one toe tapping on the stage. His eyes, shadowed by an old black Stetson, close in a kind of bliss. His singing voice is sexy -- husky and sweet and a little breathless. He usually kicks off a set with his own, “Sweet Jellyroll,” or “Get it While it’s Hot. He’s got his own seasonal material as well, like a song about a woman alone on Christmas Eve longing for a man – say, Santa –to shimmy down her chimney. “C’mere, big boy, was all she said.”
Some of his songs are sunny little numbers about living up in the Catskills, or traditional blues about good ol’ dogs who know how to tree a ‘possum. Some are tragedies about women visiting their husbands in prison. Some are murder ballads. When Herman sang about John Hardy his voice and his playing wove a net of chains. We were down at the bottom on that one with a corpse and his killer, a man stepping out of this world into another, and Herman made us wait on the story as he climbed up the chorus and walked it back and climbed it again before he took us into the melody of the next verse, closer to retribution and death.

Which memory from your trip through Mississippi meeting Jack Owens, Eugene Powell and R.L. Burnside makes you smile?

It was Jack Owens asking us if we had any alcohol – he said it “helped loosen up the fingers – arthritis, ya know”.  So of course – we obliged.  What makes me smile is knowing we really made a difference for those few hours we spent together by lifting the spirits of those Mississippi bluesmen, and that they enjoyed it as much as we did.

Mike offers up Finger-Pickin'-Good Acoustic Roots & Country Blues.

It's like being on the front porch listening to Jorma Kaukonen, Jerry Garcia, and Taj Mahal belting out traditional songs & pickin' their derrieres off!!!

 

"...I happened to catch Mike Herman in Hudson, NY last night.
He has always been a stellar finger picking, Piedmont-style blues guitarist, but I was struck by the increased authority of his singing.  He has been a solo performer for a few years now, following the breakup of the much beloved duo, The Hellhounds, and his "woodshedding" over numerous gigs in that span has clearly paid off. ..." - Mark Drnek

"I'm hearing Bob Dylan, Jorma Kaukonen, Leon Redbone, & some Guthrie when I'm listening to this guy!" ~ A New Friend & Fan Found at the Binghamton Mets Game, May 25th

"...superb fingerpicking guitarist...."
Rit Sheridan - The Blueshound

"...definitely in touch with the Blues Gods..." Dirty Linen

"...exuberant finger-pickin'..."

Philip Glass meets Muddy Waters meets Mae West
        '...At the first chords the river ripples around your feet, and then they repeat, spread and deepen, and you’re in. The guitar sets its theme and flows, the current draws you on, hypnotically, you’re in and you’re moving and when you come up to the surface it’s all the same and every fraction of a second it’s changing. One subtlety builds on another. His voice and his playing become one force. You don’t want it to ever stop.
You’re in the hands of a master here, and he’s in the hands of his own passion for the blues guitar artists of the 1930’s and 40’s he’s studied all his life. Audience and player launch out on a song and travel down it together, immersed.
The man is sexy. Lithe and deliberate, there’s something muscular and taut and catlike about the way he moves and the way he sits, composed and intent, one leg crossed and one toe tapping on the stage. His eyes, shadowed by an old black Stetson, close in a kind of bliss. His singing voice is sexy -- husky and sweet and a little breathless. He usually kicks off a set with his own, “Sweet Jellyroll,” or “Get it While it’s Hot. He’s got his own seasonal material as well, like a song about a woman alone on Christmas Eve longing for a man – say, Santa –to shimmy down her chimney. “C’mere, big boy, was all she said.”..."

This artist is one of the unknown treasures of our Hudson Valley. Or known to too few. You won’t forget hearing those first few notes, feeling that music rise and wrap around you. The first time I heard him I thought about Philip Glass, the subtle, hypnotic urgency of the repetitive back-chords. But Herman brings an enormous warmth and humor to his art. He’s so deeply accomplished that he’s possessed; his music rides him and he takes us along for that ride. Effortlessly. You don’t want to miss hearing this guy. Any chance you get.

Feather and Stone combines casual, family dining with crisp local artwork and an easygoing atmosphere.

Driven by seven years of restaurant industry experience at the oldest bar in Seattle, Hattie’s Hat, and a nutrition degree from Johnson and Wale’s University, it’s Tara’s goal to bring traditional American dishes from all over the U.S. to Walton, New York. Besides homemade comfort food, rotating specials and a full bar, live local music and events bring the Walton community together.

Main Street
Little Falls, New York 13365 [map]
Price: FREE!

Why cheese, and why Little Falls, New York?

Little Falls was once the cheese capital of the United States. A small branch of the Erie Canal led over an aqueduct to the Little Falls Cheese market, where so much cheese was traded that the price here influenced the price of cheese as far away as Europe.

Cheese production collapsed with World War I, when the milk was diverted to make evaporated milk for the army. At around the same time, refrigerated transport made it possible to send fresh milk to urban markets such as New York City. In recent years, local cheesemaking has seen a revival.

To learn more about this exciting and colorful history, please check out this tab.

What are the hours of the festival?

It begins at 10 am and ends at 5 pm, in time for dinner at one of our local restaurants.

Is there an admission fee?

No—it’s free.

We’ve been to festivals in Little Falls at Canal Place and in the big in-town parks…is this festival in one of those locations?

The Little Falls Cheese Festival is not in a park; it is being held along our Main Street. It’s easy to find and there will be signs to guide you as you approach.

What kinds of cheese will be offered?

A wide range of regional artisan and farmstead cheeses—cow, goat, sheep—fresh and aged—tasty combinations and flavorings—more! Please check out the 2017 VENDORS tab for full details! (Tip: bring a cooler or cooler bag for your purchases, or, buy one at the festival.)

Will there be products other than cheese available for sale at the festival?

You bet! There will be plenty of related products, including farm butter, gourmet chocolates, artisanal breads, pastries, crackers, jams, spreads, mustards, honey and much more.

Our local restaurants will get into the swing of things, too: pizza, our hometown specialty, will be offered in several different locations and will give visitors a chance to choose their favorite. Look for luscious, creamy cheesecake, creative cheeseburgers, and other specials.

Is this festival an annual event?

Yes! Oui! This is its third year; it just keeps getting better.

How do I get there?

Click here for DIRECTIONS, but the simplest way to reach Little Falls is via the New York State Thruway (Interstate 90), Exit 29A.

Where do I park? Is there a fee or time restriction for parking?

Parking in the City of Little Falls is plentiful and free (no meters, no lots).

What if it rains/is this a “rain or shine” event?

Yes. The festival booths will be sheltered and you can bring an umbrella in the unlikely event of precipitation!

Is there some place in Little Falls to just sit down and eat my cheese and other purchases?

Little Falls has two large public parks with shade trees, picnic tables and benches: Western Park and Eastern Park (both are a short distance from the festival area). Main Street has some “pocket parks” with benches. And Canal Place is a popular walking area, with benches.

Is Little Falls walkable?

Yes. It’s a small city with ample sidewalks and plenty to see and do.

Where can I find public restrooms while in Little Falls?

The festival area will have portajohns, including one with handicapped access.

Where are the nearest other cheese festivals?

The big Vermont Cheesemakers Festival up in Shelburne, Vermont is on Sunday, July 16. You might also be interested in the Finger Lakes Cheese Trail to the west of us, and the Finger Lakes Cheese Festival to be held at the Sunset View Creamery in Odessa, New York on Saturday, July 22.


KINDLY NOTE: ALTHOUGH THIS IS AN OUTDOOR FESTIVAL, IT IS A SMOKE-FREE EVENT.


A sampling of Little Falls restaurants and eateries. Many are running cheese-themed Festival-day specials! Take a break or stay after and check one out!

If you wish to stay overnight, there’s a range of choices.

Just take notes because it could get you a free draft and you'll want to be able to find your way back. Fill up your tank then come fill up a growler.
