Our own Mini Bluegrass Festival with The Hot Seats, Into the Fog, Josh Grigsby and County Line, and The Slack Family. The Hot Seats specialize in unearthing traditional music and reinventing it into something fresh and funky. From Richmond, Virginia, they blend ragtime, oldtime, and jug band sounds that are unlike anything you have seen or heard. This local favorite is sure to please with their dynamic tunes.

Into the Fog is a genre jumping string band hailing from Raleigh, North Carolina and they have quickly made a name for themselves across the music festival circuit. With various backgrounds ranging from blues, funk, jam, and Bluegrass this culmination of sound resonates in an acoustic Newgrass setting. To learn more visit https://intothefogmusic.com. Josh Grigsby and County Line began in 2013 and became very popular on the local music scene. Based out of the beautiful Northern Neck of Virginia, the award winning band plays traditional, contemporary, gospel and bluegrass music giving the audience a wholesome connection.
