The 2024 Farm-to-Fork Festival highlights why Sacramento is a food and agricultural powerhouse and is deservedly known as America’s Farm-to-Fork Capital. Over the past 10 years of the festival, music has increasingly been a major draw that brings in more people to experience all that Sacramento has to offer.

 

Andra Day

 

Grammy Award-winning Andra Day will headline Saturday night at the festival, bringing her talents as a singer and songwriter to the stage as she performs her eclectic mix of jazz, blues and R&B. She released her debut album, “Cheers to the Fall,” in 2015, with the hit track “Rise Up” topping the charts and garnering 1 billion streams and RIAA triple-platinum certification. In addition to her musical talents, she’s also an accomplished actress.

 

Hayes Carll & the Band of Heathens

 

Hayes Carll & The Band of Heathens – “Hayes and the Heathens” is a true union of both musical acts, according to their bio, which goes on to describe the act as “one hellaciously talent-stacked band from downbeat to encore…armed to the teeth with guitars, swagger and some of the most irresistible rock ’n’ roll, folk, country and soulful blues anthems of the last two decades.”

 

Hip Abduction

 

The Hip Abduction is on “a sonic expedition past genre barriers,” according to the group’s bio. Singer/songwriter David New writes and produces music, and other performers with The Hip Abduction include Matt Poynter on drums, Chris Powers playing bass, Justino Walker on the guitar as well as vocals and ngoni, and Cody Moore playing keys and sax, all of whom appreciate African (Afrobeat/SouKous/Malian Blue), Reggae and American (jam/electronic/indie) music. Performing since 2012, the band is a regular at music festivals across the country and has more than 560,000 monthly listens on Spotify.

 

Chance Emerson

 

Chance Emerson is a singer/songwriter who draws on a unique set of life experiences growing up in both Hong Kong and Maine to create his music. His debut album, “The Indigo Tapes,” hit No. 1 on the iTunes Singer-Songwriter chart, and his self-produced “The Raspberry Men” was played on NPR-affiliate station WICN and grabbed rave reviews from publications such as American Songwriter, The Providence Journal and others.
