Miles To Dayton
Having built a large grass roots following of fans young and old, Miles to Dayton (M2D) has headlined performances at the Patchogue Theater and sold out the Boulton Center, with notable gigs at the Paramount Theatre, Great South Bay Music Festival and the North Fork Rock and Folk Festival. Miles to Dayton’s music happens at a personal level, blending elements of folk, rock, classical, and funk into an irresistible invitation. The M2D recipe is simple: four-part vocal harmony, clever songwriting, improvisational violin and cello, and an infectious rhythm section that stirs up the creative stew. M2D has shared the stage with the likes of The Subdudes, Leslie West, Jorma Kaukonen, Tom Paxton, Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes, and Richie Havens, to name a few.

Toby Walker
“A real killer with fantastic technique. He just knocks me out.” – John Hammond
Internationally and nationally acclaimed Toby Walker has been hailed as a roots music fingerstyle guitar wizard who has toured the US, England, Wales, France, Germany, Belgium and Holland. Walker has been featured in the New York Times, the London Sunday Times, the London BBC, Sirius-XM radio and was the 1st place recipient of the International Blues Challenge Award, Solo division, given out by the Blues Foundation in Memphis TN. Walker blends the styles of blues, ragtime, country, bluegrass, rock and old time jazz into his own unique style. Jorma Kaukonen of Hot Tuna and the Jefferson Airplane says “Flat out… you have to hear this great musician… I’m blown away” and has employed Walker to teach at his famous Fur Peace Ranch Guitar Camp for six years. In 2010 Walker won the New York Music Award for Best Instrumental CD, sharing the honors with Mariah Carey, Rufus Wainwright and Judy Collins among many others.

Andrew Fortier
Archivist, storyteller, most importantly husband and dad: Andrew Fortier’s music and words are reflections of life in progress. Major recording contracts came and went for Andrew, people say they can’t believe he’s “not all over the radio” or say “you’re gonna make it”; his reply time after time is, I’ve already made it as far as my life has been, and the rest is just icing. The Upsidedown Sky is Andrews latest album he dedicates to all the life guards and guardian angels in his life. His glass is at least half full and every day a blank canvas awaits.

Additional Information
Conceived in 2006 by East End Arts, the Long Island Wine Council and the Long Island Convention and Visitors Bureau (LICVB), Winterfest Live on the Vine was created to encourage employment to musicians, and to bring tourists to the region during slower, winter months. In 2012, the festival was awarded the “National Destination Marketing Award” by Americans for The Arts and Destination Marketing International.
Winterfest Live on the Vine would not be possible without Presenting Sponsor, Suffolk County National Bank. The festival is a project of East End Arts, with support from the Long Island Convention and Visitors Bureau, the Long Island Wine Council, with additional support from NYSCA, Suffolk County, AARP, Certilman Balin Attorneys, Hamptons Art Hub, Hotel Indigo, and produced by veteran festival promoter J Faith Presents (Great South Bay Music Festival).
For 2016, Winterfest has again added headliners to the schedule, and widened the scope and theme of the festival. With the addition of the “Art of Wine” series, and non-musical events to the schedule, all are ingredients that Faith believes will help enhance the Winterfest Live on the Vine experience; the experience of this Winterfest is like no other. The combination of world-class music, in an architecturally stunning environment, amid the backdrop of the magnificent East End of Long Island, is what makes this festival the unique experience that it is!
