The two-day festival, which takes place on the grounds of the picturesque Brevard Music Center, is hosted by local music heroes the Steep Canyon Rangers. In 2022, the Grammy Award-winning Rangers will be joined by the Del McCoury Band, Amythyst Kiah, The Gibson Brothers, Chatham Rabbits, Henhouse Prowlers and Shannon Whitworth & Wood Platt. Since its inception, the festival has raised over $1 million dollars for the Cindy Platt Boys and Girls Club of Transylvania County.
