Blue Mother Tupelo at the Riverhawk Music Festival

Riverhawk Music Festival at Sertoma Youth Ranch, 18953 Clay Hill Rd, Dade City, Florida

Blue Mother Tupelo will be performing a live set and then accompanying Sugarcane Jane on their set at the Riverhawk Music Festival! Many other fine music artists performing live too!

The Riverhawk Music Festival's mission is to put people in front of a stage to hear music that they never knew they loved, and to see families together in an environment that is wholesome and clean.


The Riverhawk Music Festivals is held annually at the scenic Sertoma Youth Ranch in Brooksville, Florida (Dade City). From I-75: Exit 293 off I-75 and go EAST (ramp is a loop around, don’t let it fool you) approx 1.5 miles to left (north) on Clay Hill Road. It’s about a mile up around a few 90 degree turns. There should be signs on the road designating the fest site, and a permanent sign that says “Sertoma Ranch” is on the road as well. From Hwy 301 (which is 6 miles east of the site): As you approach the Dade City area from the north, look for the very large, very high white water tower located 100 ft on the east side of 301. (If coming from the south, take the 301 truck route around and past the city to the tower) The tower “IS” your sign to turn west! Don’t miss it!! That will be Lock St, but the sign is small. You will see a Tasty Freeze Ice Cream Cone building on your right as soon as you turn and that will let you know you are on the right track! Lock St. turns into Blanton Road, which is also CR-41 (That’s County Road, NOT state Road…there is a State Road 41 west of I-75 which confuses everyone.) Now, your 6.5 mile trip with no other turns will take you through a small rough neighborhood, at which time you will say…”Is this the right road?” and it is. Don’t get nervous. It will clear up into a real nice drive through the hills outside of Dade City. Turn right (north) on Clay Hill Road and the Fest is about a mile up around some 90 degree turns. Again., the Water tower is the key .

About the Mississippi Songwriters Festival: In 2010, a group of local Mississippi Gulf Coast friends were jammin’ (as musicians often do) and lamented that there was no vehicle to allow songwriters to share their original music… and the Mississippi Songwriters’ Festival was born! The Festival has grown into an impressive showcase of talent – including 15 to 20 professional songwriters (many from Nashville) who generously share their work by playing at a variety of local venues or teaching their craft in various workshops. Held in the picturesque art-filled city of Ocean Springs, the Mississippi Songwriters’ Festival is a “feast for the ears”. True to the mission of remaining a non-profit organization, there is never a cover charge to enjoy the shows.

Free! Love Offerings are Gratefully Received!
