Save the Date! First-ever Crooked Road Music Festival Oct 5-7

The Crooked Road, in partnership with the Town of Abingdon, will hold the first ever three-day music festival devoted to telling the story of The Crooked Road: Virginia’s Heritage Music Trail. On October 5th-7th, 2012, the rich history and musical heritage of Southwest Virginia will be on stage in Abingdon. 

The Abingdon Crooked Road Music Fest will include music performances, competitions, and workshops at Latture Field and at Heartwood: Southwest Virginia’s Artisan Gateway.  The festival begins at Heartwood on Friday, October 5th at 7:00 pm with some of the region’s finest youth groups in concert. On Saturday, October 6th, the event continues in downtown Abingdon at Latture Field with a day full of music, traditional dance and song workshops, great local food, regional crafts, and a tent devoted to the Abingdon Farmers Market Country Roads cook-off.  The music will be presented on two stages, one main stage and a workshop stage where audiences can hear performances and presentations that provide context for the music. The headliner for the main stage is Junior Sisk & Ramblers Choice, who is nominated for the 2012 International Bluegrass Music Associations Album and Song of the Year. On Sunday, October 7th, the final event of the Festival will take place back at Heartwood with their weekly Sunday Gospel Brunch beginning at 10:00 am.
