Enjoy some of the region’s best craft beers and wines while you listen to two powerhouse bluegrass bands. Food City will also be on hand with their famous “Q” pit smoker putting out some of Southwest Virginia’s tastiest BBQ. This is an outdoor venue with some permanent benches for seating, but you may want to bring a lawn chair just in case.
The Lonesome River Band was formed in 1982 by Southwest Virginia musician Tim Austin, and this progressive bluegrass group’s multiple line-ups have featured a number of leading bluegrass musicians. NewTown is a Lexington, Kentucky-based bluegrass group fronted by fiddler/vocalist Kati Penn Williams and by banjo-player/vocalist Jr. Williams. The band fuses several musical influences, including traditional bluegrass, mainstream country, gospel, and jazz.
