The talented Chelsea Cavanaugh will be returning to the stage this year.

Since she was only nine years old, Chelsea Cavanaugh has been writing music. Now for the third time ever, Chelsea will be opening for the headliners of Countryfest. The local singer-songwriter will be entertaining you while you wait for the gates to open at the Schaghticoke Fairgrounds starting at 11 a.m.

Over the course of her career, Chelsea has performed with big names such as Montgomery Genrty, Thompson Square, Phil Vassar, and Trace Adkins. When she's not touring and playing shows like South by Southwest in Texas, or the Taste of Country Music Festival, she's studying music over at Berklee in Boston. You can learn more about Chelsea and listen to her music over at her web site.
