Folks it’s time once again to start announcing 2015 lineups from pretty much all the same festivals
I covered last year PLUS a few new ones I found or have contacted me.
The Outer Banks Bluegrass Festival in Roanoke Island North Carolina
has announced a BOMBSHELL upon me!
Last week they announced the reunion of one of Bluegrass Music’s most beloved families
Cherryholmes. If you may not know the family had previously
disbanded in 2011 playing their last show in Galax Virginia.

Now unlike some of the other festivals I report on this one does not offer camping of any kind
on the property however there IS camping nearby.
I want to include some hotel room chains nearby. Click on their name it will take
you DIRECTLY to the nearest location to the festival!
This is a NEW feature I’m trying to see how many people use the feature and I can help
local businesses in every festival area.

Days Inn
Holiday Inn
Nags Head Inn
Outer Banks Inn

Hilton Garden
Sea Ranch Resort
Ramada Inn

Now just like ALL the rest I’ll add any more that contact me and I’m ALWAYS researching
more options for ALL the festivals I cover.

The Wall Street Journal recently proclaimed Rhonda Vincent “The New Queen Of Bluegrass”.
With the release of her album Back Home Again in 2000, Vincent returned to bluegrass with the
goal of expanding both the musical reach and the accessibility of the genre. The International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) accorded her its Female Vocalist of the Year award for the years 2000 – 2006, plus IBMA Entertainer of the Year in 2001. The Society for Preservation of Bluegrass Music in America (SPBGMA) designated her its Entertainer of the Year for 2002 – 2006 inclusive. She also performs with her band, Rhonda Vincent & the Rage.

Personal golf carts are NOT permitted.
Due to the unique location of this festival parking is apparently VERY limited.
Parking on the actual island (which is 27 acres) is reserved for handicapped and shuttle
services ONLY.
Shuttle service is included in your ticket price for a 5.00 additional fee.
Rain or shine event no refunds.
