Live acoustic music will fill the air, and Southern BBQ and craft beer will round out the event. Lawn chairs, blankets, and coolers are welcome at these events! Please do not bring outside alcoholic beverages – there will be beverages available for purchase at the concert.
Before the music gets started on stage, youth musicians ages 18 and under are invited to jam together beginning at 2 p.m.
Assisit...ive listening devices will be available at the PineCone information table.
Big Fat Gap (3-4 p.m.)
Big Fat Gap is a back porch bluegrass band that has no plans to take Nashville by storm. Some of them even have day jobs. They just like to pick, they like each other, and it shows in their performances, which are known to be excellent for those who enjoy sweet three-part harmonies, smoking solos, and captivating stage dynamics. The core band members are: Miles Andrews on lead vocals and bass, Jeff Stickley on guitar, and Chris Roszell on banjo; and you never know who might join them on stage as special guests!
The Lil Smokies (4:30-6 p.m.)
The Lil Smokies perform a unique blend of excellent songwriting, bluegrass roots and the sheer raw energy of a rock band. They weave seamlessly through genres, leaving behind melodies you’ll be singing to yourself for days. When people see The Lil Smokies setting up their acoustic instruments, they’re often unprepared for the electric energy they generate. The band captures that same dynamic presence on their new album, «Changing Shades,» delivering their exceptional songwriting and bluegrass roots with the punch of a rock band.
Dusty Donuts and Sunset Slush of Raleigh will be on-site. And we will have a full bar available for purchase (21+ with I.D.) featuring Larceny Bourbon. We hope to see you out there!
Presented by PNC.
