Since its start in 2011 the Music Frees All Festival has been raising money annually to support legendary Brooklyn based producer Scott Harding (Scotty Hard). On February 16 2008, as Scotty was leaving a late night session at his Brooklyn studio, a stolen car broadsided the taxi he was traveling in, paralyzing him below the chest, sending him into complicated spinal reconstruction surgery and hospitalization. To friends and admirers alike, Scotty is a true inspiration. Though his spirits remain high throughout his tough times, Scotty Hard continues to need our support. Join us in supporting Scotty and celebrating music, art, food, friends and good times!
