Queen Esther, Dusty Wright and Martin John Butler play Americana at Pig Island Red Hook, Brooklyn Saturday, September 12th 11:30am – 4pm one 60 minute set at 2:30pm This year’s 6th Annual Pig Island will take place on Saturday, September 12th, and include 20+ chefs serving up specialty pork dishes made from pork sourced locally from Flying Pigs Farms.
