1pm: Slight Departure: A WNC based Folk/Americana/Old Time quintet, and it’s 5-part harmonies and instruments indigenous to North Carolina, make this group a must-see act.
3pm: Tru Blu: They have been a work in progress for years, playing bluegrass, classic country, gospel, original songs, and golden oldies – all to enthusiastic audiences.
1pm: True Grass: They hail from Burnsville, NC, and have been playing truegrass, newgrass, and gospel since 1994. Band members include Anthony Allen, Jeff Allen, Daniel Cook, Daniel Norton, and Jacob Carroll.
3pm: Crossfire Bluegrass Band: From Sparta, NC, play great bluegrass renditions from band members Joe Willey, Jerel Willey, Justin Willey, and Bill Paul.
1pm: Harlan County Grass: From East Tennessee, they take pride in being a traditional bluegrass band. The band stays steeped deep in the roots of the music that actually wears the label of bluegrass.
3pm: Jerry, Mike & Bill: Bill Wygand never expected that he and a couple of high school band buddies would be playing music in the NC mountains after putting his old Charlotte Catholic High School band back together for his 50th anniversary class reunion. Jerry Herbert and Mike Evans had so much fun with the reunion band that they decided to keep playing together. The thing the guys most have in common is their love of music and the fun they have playing it.
