    Bluffton, OH: August 29, 2005: Fall Ripplefest will take place in Bluffton, Ohio on Friday and Saturday, September 16th, 17th 2005. The event will feature two days of music and camping as well various vendors and activities for children. The venue and campground are conveniently located at Exit 142 off I-75 in Northwestern. Camping and parking are included with paid admission to the festival.

    Artist Line-up
    Twelve acts will grace the Ripplefest stage over the course of the two-day event. Artists scheduled to perform include Hot Tuna Acoustic, Sam Bush Band, Papa Mali, The Recipe, Grasshopper Pie, One Under (featuring members of Ekoostik Hookah and The Shantee), The One-Eyed Show, Skeleton Crew, John Mullins Band, Ritchey Brothers Band, Mike Perkins of the Shantee and JP & The Chatfield Boys.

    Hot Tuna Acoustic

    One of the most enduringly popular American bands, Hot Tuna has been performing and recording since the mid-1960s. Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady formed the precursor to Hot Tuna while they were still in high school and founded the first incarnation of the band while they were both founding members of Jefferson Airplane. Hot Tuna has recorded 19 albums and CDs in addition to Jack and Jorma's solo albums. In recent years, they've welcomed the virtuoso mandolin, tenor banjo, and tenor guitar of the legendary Barry
    Mitterhoff, proving that after four decades Hot Tuna just gets better. They stop at Ripplefest for a rare Ohio performance on Saturday September 17th.

    Sam Bush Band

    Sam Bush has done as much as anyone since Bill Monroe to shape the destiny of the diminutive mandolin, adding new power and syncopation to its percussive chop and a new harmonic vocabulary that embraces rock, reggae, Afro-pop and jazz. His decades of popularity at eclectic music festivals like Telluride and MerleFest stem from the fact that he’s also a stage dervish, a rhythm doctor and a party animal, not to mention an enthusiastic storyteller and a gifted mimic. Indeed, Sam’s most recent CD as a bandleader, Ice Caps: Peaks of Telluride, captured the breadth and excitement of the Sam Bush Band in the live festival setting. Sam Bush and his band will take the stage on Saturday night at Fall Ripplefest.
