|Outer Banks Bluegrass Festival 2013
Friday and Saturday, October 4th to 6th
Location: Outdoor Pavilion, Manteo, NC
The 2nd Annual Outer Banks Bluegrass Island Festival is just around the corner! Come hear that old familiar twang in the tradition of Bill Monroe, Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs and so many other legendary performers. Come hear today's Bluegrass stars, such as Rhonda Vincent and Doyle Lawson picking their strings outside, under October skies. We're bringing 'em in from all over the country for three days of down home cookin' and good ole Southern pickin'. Join us this October for a fun filled family weekend with the music of our roots, the music of our grandfathers, the music of America... Bluegrass!
