12 p.m. – Province of Thieves
The 2018 winner of the Carolina Music Award for Bluegrass and Folk hails from Indian Trail. Province of Thieves is an all-acoustic quartet featuring guitar, mandolin, ukulele, upright bass and percussion. But what really sets these guys apart are their powerful vocal harmonies, reminiscent of Crosby Still and Nash or the Eagles with influences spanning folk rock, bluegrass, beach music and 80’s pop.
2 p.m. – Stepside Deluxe
Stepside Deluxe has forged a creative path in music stemming from their influences of Roots, Rockabilly and the Honky-Tonk twang of Bakersfield, California, also known as Nashville West. Comprised of frontman Bil Jones, bassist Jim Potter and guitarist Tony Rogers these musicians are at the core of the talented band of brothers who are dedicated to the traditions of honest country music.
4 p.m. – David Holt & Josh Goforth
Recognized as the host of the State of Music and other PBS shows, David Holt and acoustic music star Josh Goforth join together to bring the joy and spirit of old time mountain music and stories to life. They combine the virtuosic sounds of guitar, banjo, fiddle, slide guitar and mandolin with a world of exciting rhythm instruments. Josh is descended from many of the old-timers David learned from in the late 1960s in Lonesome Mountain, NC.
