After the unfortunate announcement yesterday that the Bluegrass Island Festival in Manteo, NC would be canceled for the rest of the weekend, the Cherryholmes had a decision to make. Many fans were anxiously awaiting one of the family’s few reunion shows since they disbanded in 2011, and four of the six family members had already arrived in the area, looking forward to reuniting for the audience. Well, this is show business after all, so “The show must go on!”
Skip, Cia, Jere, and Sandy Cherryholmes will be performing a Cherryholmes & Friends Show in Garner, NC at Lorraine’s Coffee House & Music on Saturday for all of the fans who came to Outer Banks in order to see the talented family. Unfortunately, BJ and Molly Cherryholmes will not be performing, as they are out on the road with Dailey & Vincent and Mountain Heart respectively, and travel plans had not placed them in NC before the unfortuante weather.
Skip Cherryholmes, the family’s stellar guitarist and current member of Sideline, offered up these details about the show.
Cherryholmes regrets to announce that the Reunion show scheduled for the Outer Banks Bluegrass Island Festival this weekend has been cancelled due to drastic weather. The entire Cherryholmes Family sends out their apologies to everyone that made plans to attend the show. Things are in the works to try to reschedule the reunion, and we appreciate everyone’s patience while we work out all of the details. We will get the word out as soon as something is confirmed. In the meantime, we would like to announce that at least 4 of the 6 family members, along with some special guests, will be doing a Cherryholmes and Friends performance at Lorraine’s Coffee House & Music in Garner, NC Saturday night, and invite everyone to come for an evening of family fun and music! Thank you so much for your understanding, and a huge thank you to Corey Hemilright and the entire Outer Banks gang for their hard work. Prayers go out to the team as they get all of the attendees safely on the road and close things down before the weather sweeps them over.
For folks who had planned on attending the Outer Banks Bluegrass Island Festival this weekend, Cherryholmes & Friends seems like a fun alternative! And being so close to the Raleigh area, perhaps folks who make it into town early for IBMA week will be able to catch this fun and memorable show.
