We are excited to announce that Appalachian Road Show will be headlining the 15th Annual Lakes Bluegrass Festival, August 25 - 29, 2021.
Appalachian Road Show is a visionary acoustic ensemble, bringing new-generation interpretations of traditional Americana, bluegrass and folk songs, as well as offering innovative original music, all presented with a common thread tied directly to the heart of the Appalachian regions of the United States. GRAMMY-nominated banjoist Barry Abernathy, joins forces with GRAMMY-winning fiddler Jim VanCleve, fresh off of his recent stint touring with multi-platinum country artist Josh Turner, as well as esteemed vocalist and mandolinist Darrell Webb, who has recorded and toured with Dolly Parton and Rhonda Vincent, among many others. The group also includes bassist Todd Phillips, an acknowledged legend in bluegrass music circles, with two GRAMMY wins and four GRAMMY nominations under his belt, along with 23-year-old “old soul” guitarist Zeb Snyder, whose fierce and versatile playing recalls Doc Watson and Norman Blake as readily as it does Duane Allman and Stevie Ray Vaughn.
Also headlining the festival are Alan Bibey and Grasstowne, High Fidelity, The Farm Hands, High Plains Tradition and many other great bands. Click here for the complete lineup!
This will be our first festival at our new site, The Lakes Music and Events Park! We are so excited for you to come and see our beautiful new park with lots of great campsites (electrical and primitive) set in the pines along, with our new workshop and band pavillions and large concert area.
Tickets and camping will be available right here on the website this spring (by May 1).
Please consider making a tax deductible donation to the development our new festival site!
We have purchased our own land to be the permanent new home of the Lakes Bluegrass Festival, just 1/2 mile north of the previous location. The new site is called the Lakes Music and Events Park and will eventually host other musical and community events in addition to the festival. Click here for more information
