Each October, the Plant&Sing Festival is held at historic Sylvester Manor on Shelter Island, NY.  People gather to plant garlic and harvest fall crops, transforming the fields and the work itself with festive songs, dances, recitations and meals.

When the work is done, it’s time to enjoy our world-class festival of Bluegrass and Traditional American Music on the expansive waterfront lawn of Sylvester Manor.  Savor locally produced libations & food, and kick back to amazing music as the sun sets over Gardiner’s Creek.

It’s the community harvest festival, made new.  We are preserving old traditions and exploring how to create a new culture of food that is joyful, alive with people – rooted in sharing & sense of place- set to a Traditional American Music soundtrack.

Sylvester Manor is excited to announce that the Wainwright Sisters featuring  Martha Wainwright & Lucy Wainwright Roche will headline this year’s Plant & Sing Festival. Opening for Martha will be Bluegrass sensation The Deadly Gentlemen hailing from Nashville and Boston, as well as five other critically acclaimed bands, and a collection of nationally recognized food writers, poets and thinkers.
