The American Legion Post #104 and Wilson Pickins Promotions, along with many sponsors, volunteers and friends have been very busy planning and getting things ready for the exciting premiere of the 1st Annual Veterans Bluegrass & Gospel Festival in October!
We are excited to report that we now have a host hotel AND campground serving the lodging needs of our out of town bluegrass fans! The Landmark Inn located in Sevierville, TN and Riverside RV Park & Resort are both located within minutes of the Festival location at the Sevier County Fairgrounds and are offering affordable rates for attendees. Contact information for lodging at either of these establishments can be found on the website.
In band news, we have a brand new addition to our Friday lineup....Sideline will be joining us for two sets! The schedule has now been posted to the website and will be getting shared to the event posting on social media. The two-day event includes an incredible back to back combination of stellar talent and we are so pleased to have Sideline on board with us.
We will also be hosting an on-site CD Release celebration with one of our bands performing both Saturday and Sunday. Bonfire Recording artists, Wilson Banjo Co. will be releasing their new album, SPIRITS IN THE HILLS on October 27th and will be holding their release party festivities right here at the festival! This will be the first time and place to be able to purchase a copy of their new album AND listen to the new material LIVE!
