About the Larlee Creek Hullabaloo
The Larlee Creek Hullabaloo is a not-for-profit outdoor music festival held annually each August in the Village of Perth-Andover, New Brunswick. Their programming consists primarily of Atlantic Canadian musicians, with a marked spotlight on local and regional artists. In a community where very few live performance venues exist for local and regional artists, where citizens often have to leave the area to access and/or support the arts, the Larlee Creek Hullabaloo is deliberately designed to promote the work of local, regional (NB) and Atlantic Canadian artists. Their program reflects the diverse cultural heritage of their communities as expressed through their artist’s music, writing and artisanship while creating an occasion for our community to be educated, engaged, participate in and support the arts in their community.
