Music Schedule:
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.)
thelilsmokies.com
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.
Sponsored by Larceny Bourbon, Clancy & Theys Construction Company, 947 QDR & KIX 102.9
