Music on Dunn's Mountain

Dunn’s Mountain will echo with music on Saturday, Aug. 27 from noon until 6 p.m.
Music On The Mountain 2011 is an annual bluegrass and country music festival which this year features the renowned Snyder Family from Lexington.
The Snyder Family is a great up-and-coming family group that is getting lots of attention in the bluegrass community, and they are in the running for IBMA’s emerging artist of the year.
The stars are 16-year-old Zeb, who is the South Carolina state guitar champion at RenoFest 2011, and 12-year-old Samantha, who won second place at the Galax Fiddler’s Convention in 2010, and is the youngest ever Fiddler Of The Festival at Fiddler’s Grove in Union Grove. They each just won first place at Galax 2011, Zeb on bluegrass guitar, and Samantha on bluegrass fiddle. See more at www.snyderfamilyband.com
Also performing at the festival is Dry Run Bluegrass Band, which features local violin teacher Carrie Webster and Eden’s Gate, a duo featuring guitar by Jamey Basinger and fiddle by Melissa Adams. They are both from China Grove.
There is no admission fee to the festival and guests are invited to bring chairs or blanket and a picnic lunch.
It is held at Dunn’s Mountain Nature and History Preserve, 1740 Dunn’s Mountain Road. Call 704-216-7833 or go to www.dannicholas.net for more information.
