4th Annual Mountain Song Festival: Friday, September 11, and Saturday, September 12, 2009

MtnSong_logo.pngTickets go on sale on Monday, May 11th for the 4th Annual Mountain Song Festival held in Brevard, NC. An event inspired by the region’s youth, the festival will once again help fund the Boys & Girls Club of Transylvania County and other youth focused organizations, and facilitate educational opportunities for children and adults.

This top-notch festival will again present outstanding talent at the world-renown Brevard Music Center with The David Grisman Quintet, The Seldom Scene, Shannon Whitworth & the Refugees, Town Mountain, and host band Steep Canyon Rangers taking to the stage.

Past Mountain Song Festival entertainers Doc Watson, the Del McCoury Band, IIIrd Tyme Out, Cherryholmes, Tim O’Brien, Sam Bush, Peter Rowan & Tony Rice Quartet, and Claire Lynch have helped to raise funds for the Boys & Girls Club of Transylvania County.

With over $100,000 raised for the charity, efforts of the event-organizers to "Go Green" (all vendors use eco-friendly compostable tableware), and surprise guests stunning the crowd (the multi-talented Steve Martin made a surprise guest appearance at the 2008 event, joining the Steep Canyon Rangers on stage to perform several banjo tunes) the Mountain Song Festival is quickly becoming one of the premier family-friendly events to attend.
