Misty Mountain Music Festival Set for Sept. 28-29
The second annual Misty Mountain Music Festival will feature Virginia-based bands and the area’s best folk, bluegrass, country and rock on stages at Misty Mountain Camp Resort on Rt. 250 in Greenwood September 28-29.
The festival aims to entertain music fans and raise charitable donations for Crozet-area non-profit causes. This year the event is presented by the Crozet Volunteer Fire Department and will also benefit Operation Warmth and the Nelson County Food Pantry.
“The performers are all Virginia-based, original bands, with Indecision headlining Saturday night on the main stage, as well as the Travis Elliott Band and Yankee Dixie,” said festival coordinator John Howard. “Friday will be more rock and blues based with the Eli Cook Band rounding out the night. Music will be seamless; as one band finishes, the next stage begins.”
Other performers include Second Draw, Kathryn Caine, Mercy Creek, The Judy Chops, Jason Ring, Grit City Grass, Curtis Prince and White Trees, David Tewksbury, the Smokehouse Bluegrass Band, Brian Patrick Band, Willie DE Band and Sally Roses’ Witchbaby. The full lineup of bands can be found at www.mistymountainmusicfestival.com.
Local craft breweries, wineries, restaurants and artisans will be a part of this year’s event with the Devils Backbone Brewing Company and Starr Hill Brewery anchoring the selection of brews.
Festival doors will open Sept. 28 at 3 p.m. and music will begin at 4 p.m. On Saturday, the music starts at noon and runs until 11:30 p.m.
