MerleFest was founded in the late eighties as a primary fundraising event for Wilkesboro community college. Although, it started off as a small scale event, now its popularity exceeds across the borders and attracts more than 79,000 people globally. It is now counted amongst one of the largest music festivals in United States and is also ranked at the third position for being the best tourist attraction in North Carolina.
Over the past 24 years, it is the incredible lineup of artists that has contributed majorly to the fame of MerleFest. The list includes John Prine, Elvis Costello, Willie Nelson, Dolly Patron and others of the like. This year, keeping up with its tradition, the lineup includes artists/bands like The Avett Brothers, Jim Avett, Red Molly, Pauls’ Creek Band and The Black Lillies. Since the festival has 14 stages in total, the performances of the bands are spread accordingly, over a four day period.
A look into the profile of the performing bands in MerleFest adds to the excitement. The Avett Brothers is an indie rock band, contributing to the genre for more than a decade now. Its music has been appreciated in the music industry for being as tuneful as that of the Beatles and as energetic as that of Ramones. The mix of bluegrass, pop, country and folk melodies combined with vocals of the Brothers has rocked the audiences for a number of years and this time it is going to be no different at MerleFest.
Other than this, the limelight at the festival will be shared by a Jazz band, The Black Lillies. It is a recent addition to the music industry and is a regular performer at major music festivals such as Bonarro Music and Arts Festival, Rhythm and Blues and Pickathon. Recognized to be the Best Americana Band, it is looking forward to grow its list of achievements with the brand new studio albums and live concerts.
Apart from it, Red Molly is on the list of performing bands as well. It is a folk trio and has a global fan following known as the Redheads. It has released five studio albums with the latest one, titled, Light in the Sky. At MerleFest, it will be performing to hit singles from the past and also from the latest release.
Paul’s Creek band is also scheduled to share the stage along with other artists this year. It is considered among the finest acoustic string bands of the music industry and its music is rooted in traditional sounds, old songs and harmonies. It doesn’t let go of high energy and it is the band’s ability to connect to the audience with their humor stories and the sounds of banjo, guitar and fiddle that rates it to be one of the audience favorites.
The above mentioned bands are established names of the music industry. MerleFest is an event that does not present works of famous artists/bands only, but it also open doors of opportunities for the emerging stars. A variety of songwriting and music playing contests are conducted that not only give the brand new artists relevant exposure, but also polish their skills further.
