Blue Ridge Music Trails "Family Traditions" Concert

The Cockman FamilyJust as it was for Earl Scruggs, music is part of the family for the performers at the Blue Ridge Music Trails "Traditions” Concert, set for Thursday, September 17, at 7 pm at the Earl Scruggs Center in Shelby, NC. This concert, “Family Traditions,” showcases the talents of two family bands for whom the traditional music of the NC mountains and foothills has long been an integral part of their lives. One might say music is in their blood.

Fiddler's Grove Ole Time Fiddler's & Bluegrass Festival this May

Fiddler's GroveUnion Grove, NC -- In 1924, H.P. Van Hoy, a schoolteacher and fiddler, thought of an innovative way to raise money for Union Grove School. He would hold a fiddler's convention. The convention became a tradition, carried on in recent years by Harper A. Van Hoy, H. P. Van Hoy's son. On May 23-25, 2014, the fourth generation of Van Hoy descendants will open the gate for the 90th iteration of that acclaimed musical institution: a weekend of competition, performances by invited musicians, workshops, jamming, and the renewal of years-long friendships. This is the oldest fiddler's contest in North America, acclaimed a Local Legacy by the Library of Congress, icon of the genre, and not to be missed. The Fiddler's Grove Ole Time Fiddler's and Bluegrass Festival is held at 1819 West Memorial Hwy., Union Grove, NC.
