    Music fans seek out Scranton each summer for the Peach Festival at Montage Mountain with four days of live performances, arts, camping, and community.

    Headliners this year include Trey Anastasio, Gov’t Mule, Toots & the Maytals, Anders Osborne and The Allman Brothers Family Incident – featuring The String Cheese Incident with members of the Allman Brothers Band.

    Newsworks Tonight’s Dave Heller sat down with guitarist Bill Nershi, a founding member of The String Cheese Incident, a couple of weeks before Greg Allman cancelled his appearance due to illness.
