With its outstanding line-ups, extraordinary venue, philanthropic spirit and sweet, laid back early September vibe, it’s not hard to understand how this gem of a music festival has become one of North Carolina’s best. That David Grisman, Tim O’Brien, Sam Bush, the Carolina Chocolate Drops, Steve Martin and others might share a stage over the course of a couple of nights should be enough to make any bluegrass and Americana fan jump for joy. But that’s the level of performance you can expect. Local bluegrass heroes, the Steep Canyon Rangers, host and curate.
