A celebration of Appalachian music and cultural heritage, the Doc & Rosa Lee Watson MusicFest 'N Sugar Grove will take place July 10 and 11, 2015 on the grounds of the Historic Cove Creek High School in Sugar Grove, N.C.

Headliners slated for this family-friendly weekend include Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver, the Krüger Brothers, Town Mountain, the Snyder Family Band, Amantha Mill, Savannah Smith and many more.

Since its inception in the late ’90s, the festival’s twofold mission remains the same — to support community development in Watauga County, North Carolina and to honor Doc Watson, a Grammy award-winning singer, songwriter, flatpicking legend and 2004 recipient of the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.

They will perform the sounds of Appalachia that Watson popularized around the world, covering genres including bluegrass, country, folk, gospel, blues and more.

Come and listen to the music and meet the artist in an intimate festival setting. Food, refreshments, crafts and artwork will be available for purchase by local vendors.
