By David Rogers. October 3, 2018. BLOWING ROCK, NC — Good vibes and smooth sounds, that’s what is in store for Blowing Rock on Sunday with the 5th annual Blowing Rock Music Festival at The Blowing Rock attraction. Gates open at 8:30 am and the slate of high entertainment goes from 12 noon until sundown.
Co-hosted by the headliner band, The Harris Brothers, the music festival was originally scheduled for September 15th, but bad weather required rescheduling it for October 7th. The same lineup of entertainers is still on the program, including Robertson Boys, South Carolina Broadcasters, Jeff Little Trio, Wayne Henderson, Strictly Clean and Decent, The Neighbors, Shelby Rae Moore Band, Soul Benefactor, Dave Braun Band, Charlie Carpenter, and more.
In an interview on Wednesday, event organizer Charlie Sellers told Blowing Rock News, “All of these wonderful performers love playing this one-of-a-kind venue at The Blowing Rock. This is such a terrific way to kick off the fall season. The leaves have started to turn, you have the majestic views across the Johns River Gorge to the west and out over the Piedmont to the south and east, and then you have some of the South’s best musicians.”
Tickets are available at The Blowing Rock attraction (828-295-7111 or 828-295-4812), as well as at the Blowing Rock Chamber of Commerce (828-295-7851). Until the time the gates open, tickets are $30 each, then $45 on the day of the event. Children under 12 are $10.00.
