The ETSU Bluegrass Pride Band opened the show. The ETSU bluegrass music program is growing by leaps and bounds, drawing students from all over the United States. Heather and Tony Mabe were next up with their Gospel music ministry. This was their first bluegrass festival appearance since 2012. They have been doing church shows and revivals.

Michael Cleveland and Flamekeeper put on the high energy show that fans have come to expect. Jamie and Darrin joked with Michael about him wearing a pink shirt and the rest of the band blue. Michael said he would get even with Jamie and Darrin. Michael was wearing a blue shirt! The Isaacs closed the evening with a show that can only be characterized as “Isaacs music.” They had the crowd on its feet several times.

Friday brings The Church Sisters, Danny Paisley and Southern Grass, The Lonesome River band, Blue Highway, and Dailey and Vincent to the stage. There will also be cooking demonstrations from Springer Mountain Chicken along with product tasting.
