Dirty Harriet at Nedfest

Nedfest Music and Arts Festival is a three day music, arts, and microbrew event held the last weekend of August in the the mountains of Nederland, Colorado.

The music that is played at this festival can range from bluegrass to rock, jazz to world genres, and even a mix of two or more types of music.

Vancouver Island band Dirty Harriet were one of the acts to take to the stage. Fronted by singer/songwriter Sabrina Kufner, Kufner’s deep powerful voice has been compared to that of musician Melissa Etheridge.

  Dirty Harriet performs original song Cloak and Dagger.

  Dirty Harriet performs System of a Down‘s cover, Toxicity.
