Merlefest 2017

Wednesday, February 22nd, 2017

Merlefest 2017 is just around the corner. The North Carolina High Country’s premier Americana Music Festival returns to the Wilkes County College campus in North Wilkesboro the weekend of April 27-30. Some of the headliners this year include the Zac Brown Band, the Avett Brothers, and Marty Stuart. Also returning is one of my favorites, Scythian, but one of the joys of Merlefest is discovering new artists you’ve never heard of before, and with over 80 different acts you’re bound to find a new favorite. So come on down and experience the music, the moments and the memories.

DSCF0188Another fabulous Merlefest has come and gone leaving behind a lot of great music and memories. I always have a great time at this annual celebration of Americana and roots music, not only taking in the fabulous performances but enjoying the vendors, the arts and crafts, the food and the informative nature hike provided by local botanist Ken Crouse. I particularly enjoyed the fine sets by Irish newcomers We Banjo Three and Merlefest stalwarts, Scythian and Old Crow Medicine Show. But don’t take my word for it read what Huffington Post had to say about the festival.
