MerleFest is celebrating its 25th year this year!
Apr 26, 2012
Other performers this year include Doc Watson and Vince Gill, performances that will be nothing short of amazing.
MerleFest was founded in celebration of “traditional plus” music. Not sure what that means? It was described by Doc Watson when he said "When Merle and I started out we called our music 'traditional plus,' meaning the traditional music of the Appalachian region plus whatever other styles we were in the mood to play.”
It’s this unique style that has built such a solid lineup of musicians at MerleFest year after year. This is one place where you’ll see musicians like Sam on stage collaborating with the unlikeliest of partners, and it’s certainly going to be a festival you have to see. Be sure to get your tickets now right here.
