The much anticipated BIG NEWS is here! Organizers of the inaugural Earl Scruggs Music Festival, coming September 4-5, 2020 to Mill Spring, North Carolina, are proud to announce two major headliners that have been added to the festival lineup: Old Crow Medicine Show and Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder. Yes!

 

Our friends in Unspoken Tradition bring some live bluegrass to "Goin' Across the Mountain" this Saturday! As they say most accurately, their material reflects the ever-changing culture of Western & Central North Carolina where they call home. Audie McGinnis on guitar, Ty Gilpin on mandolin, Tim Gardner on fiddle, Sav Sankaran on bass, & Zane McGinnis on banjo. They play Saturday night at Isis Resturant & Music Hall in Asheville, NC.

Today representatives from the Earl Scruggs Center and WNCW 88.7 FM announced big plans for the First Annual Earl Scruggs Music Festival, coming September 4-5, 2020 to Tryon International Equestrian Center in Mill Spring, NC. Celebrating the legacy of an American music legend, the Earl Scruggs Music Festival will bring together artists from bluegrass, Americana, blues, and many other roots music genres to celebrate the pioneering vision of Earl Scruggs.

WNCW will broadcast live from The Pour House Music Hall in Raleigh, NC for one of this year's Bluegrass Ramble showcases at the International Bluegrass Music Association's World of Bluegrass Festival. Among the acts scheduled: The Barefoot Movement, Darin & Brooke Aldridge, and the Po' Ramblin' Boys, who are expected to be joined by a number of familiar guests! Expect many of these acts to announce that they'll be at the Inaugural Earl Scruggs Music Festival coming to the Tryon International Equestrian Center in Mill Spring, NC over Labor Day Weekend 2020!
