I am a program writer, for the world’s largest Beatles festival

Abbey Road on the RiverThis weekend Louisville is hosting Abbey Road on the River, the world’s largest Beatles-inspired festival. In celebration of its 10th anniversary, Abbey Road on the River published a souvenir program, which it hired me to write. For the 20-page glossy booklet I wrote

  • bios of all 64 bands
  • a two-page history of the festival
  • a sidebar on four families who are festival regulars
  • an ad on George Harrison’s history with Gretsch guitars
  • a one-page article on the festival’s ensemble shows

The program’s not online but will be available at the festival for $6 (I get no commission, but recommend picking up one anyway).

[Updated June 13, 2011: Abbey Road on the River made the program available for free as a low-resolution, watermarked .pdf download.]
