MerleFest on the Road Concert & Festival Preview
The Blue Ridge Music Center is happy to partner with Triad Acoustic Stage to present the 2nd Annual Merlefest on the Road Concert & Festival Preview. The concert and festival preview features a few of the up and coming acts that will perform at this spring's Merlefest. Jonathan Byrd has been described by The Boston Globe as "displaying John Prine's gift for stark little songs that tell big, complex stories, Guy Clark's lean melodicism, and Lyle Lovett's wry mischief. The music of the Locust Honey String Band has been described as warm, emotional, and, at times, heartbreaking. From traditional fiddle/banjo tunes to vintage country duets, Carter Family songs to dancehall honky tonk songs and mountain blues. the Locust Honey String Band pays homage to the Appalachain Mountain Music that became hillbilly, old-time, and eventually country music.
