Strings ’n harmony
No need for your lawn chair at this indoor weekend festival. The concert rooms are fully stacked with seats and a lineup cushioned with the likes of 2009 International Bluegrass Music Association Entertainers of the Year, Dailey and Vincent; seven-time IBMA Female Vocalist of the Year, Rhonda Vincent and Rage; and multi-IBMA award winners, Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver. If that weren’t enough, there’s a guitar trade show, an open talent showcase on Saturday, pickin’ areas and instrument and clogging workshops. Tickets are available at the door.
