ABOUT THE PERFORMER

Maddy Walsh & The Blind Spots

Maddy Walsh & The Blind Spots, a tenured, original, five-piece moxy rock band steered by magnetic songstress and force of nature Maddy Walsh, recently celebrated its ten-year “bandiversary” with a sold-out show at Ithaca, NY’s Hangar Theatre. The event was paired with the release of the band’s fourth studio album, Talk, which they have been actively touring the country in support of. The new album brings forth a wide range of emotions and a matured grasp of songwriting, paired, as always, with the band’s signature high-energy performances and incessant penchant for FUN.

The band also known for its sparkly aesthetic, from Walsh’s signature sequins and white go-go boots to the Blind Spots’ Thrift Shop (a big rack of wild re-purposed / secondhand clothing with the band’s logo printed on) to their collection of music videos created to accompany songs on all four albums. Their current equipment trailer, stenciled with human hearts, has a giant dent in the back with quite a story: …
MW&TBS has shared festival and event bills with the likes of Lake Street Dive, Silversun Pickups, Valerie June, Rubblebucket, Jukebox the Ghost, Amy Helm, Donna the Buffalo, Sharon Jones (rest her soul), The Punch Brothers, Steve Earle, Anders Osborne, Blues Traveler, Eddie Money, and Rusted Root, among others, and with the recent addition of two new, very talented musicians, they continue to show exponential growth, as they expand their touring radius, gaining new fans and momentum with each electrifying live performance.

2020 Rochester Lilac Festival announcement

As of today, we are being advised by the Monroe County Health Department that we will be unable to hold the 2020 Rochester Lilac Festival during the originally planned timeframe of May 8th -17th. As you can imagine, this is painful for all of us. However, we are hopeful and optimistic that we will be able to reschedule.

As time progresses, and more information is known, we’ll be letting you, our valued Festival participants and attendees know if, and when we plan to reschedule the Festival.

Hang in there and stay healthy.
