I'm also proud to have been involved with these past events:
Strings & Suds Music Fest
Pisgah Brewing Company and HoosierDevil presented Strings & Suds Music Fest on August 23rd and 24th at Pisgah Brewing Company in Black Mountain, NC! This festival featured bluegrass, Americana, alt-country, and more in a beautiful setting along with craft beer, local food, and carefully curated vendors.
The lineup included The Mavericks, Donna the Buffalo, Junior Brown, Jim Lauderdale, Sierra Hull, and many more.
HoosierDevil provided promotional support to the Chantilly Farm Bluegrass & BBQ Festival, taking place Memorial Day Weekend in Floyd, VA.
The Chantilly Farm Bluegrass & BBQ Festival has caught the attention of fans from around the country by its stellar lineup that is heavy on traditional bluegrass and the preservation of old-time and heritage music, but with more progressive bands also added to the mix. The festival has long served as the official home festival of Mountain Fever recording artist, Southwest Virginia native, and multi-award winner, Junior Sisk.
“It has always been a true honor to call this my home festival,” says Sisk. “Each year they put together a great lineup, and the festival really strives to create a great experience for every single person that comes through the gate. That’s not something you see at every event you attend."
