BCF2 gets Zlatne Uste!

We are extremely proud to announce that Zlatne Uste Balkan Brass Band will be headlining the Second Annual Balkan Chestnut Festival (BCF2) at Wyoming Farm in Clinton, Maryland on Oct 12th.

Zlatne Uste is the only American band to have competed at the world famous Guca Trumpet Festival in Serbia. We learned about them in the documentary “Brasslands” available on Amazon Prime and then attended their amazingly fun festival in Brooklyn, New York called Zlatne Uste Golden Festival that has been running for over 30 years. As they were a part of the inspiration for our Balkan Chestnut Festival, we are thrilled to be hosting them in just our second year.

The poster image above shows what you can expect at this year’s celebration of Wyoming Farm’s chestnut harvest. We will have excellent live Balkan music, Balkan style circle dancing with instruction, local wine, cold beer, and excellent Balkan food including roasted chestnuts.
