Hitting All the Right Notes: Carolina Bible Camp Bluegrass Festival Coming September 10th, Mocksville, NC

 

The Carolina Bible Camp bluegrass festival is America’s only bluegrass festival that promotes Bible study and wholesome music and recreation.

 

Snyder Family Band

 

Mocksville, North Carolina, August 29, 2016 - Parents and grandparents who are looking for a family-friendly event that strikes the right chord with everyone will find it in the heart of North Carolina this fall when Mocksville hosts the fifth annual Carolina Bible Camp Bluegrass Festival on September 10th. The event is held 10:00am to 6:00pm.
 
This unique outdoor festival will be held on the CBC campus’ sixty-eight acre property at 1988 Jericho Church Road, Mocksville, NC, 27028. The bluegrass-plus line-up includes international favorites Scythian (sith-ee-yin). This Washington, DC based band plays sets which always keep crowds on their feet with gypsy songs, Irish ballads, and “immigrant rock with thunderous energy, technical prowess, and storytelling songwriting.” According to Nashville’s Music City Roots, Scythian is “what happens when rock star charisma meets Celtic dervish fiddling.” The popular group consists of brothers Alexander and Danylo Fedoryka, sister Larissa Fedoryka, and Josef Crosby, Ben-David Warner, and Tim Hepburn.
 
Traditional bluegrassers Junior Sisk & Ramblers Choice will also appear at CBCBF16. Sisk, the 2013 IBMA Male Vocalist of the Year winner, can “wring every bit of lonesome out of a note.” The band was named 2014 SPBGMA Bluegrass Band of the Year. “Poor Boy’s Pleasure,” the band’s latest album, debuted at number two on the Billboard bluegrass chart.
 
The line-up also includes the festival’s annual guests, the Snyder Family Band, featuring Zeb Snyder on guitar, Samantha Snyder on fiddle, and Bud Snyder on bass. The threesome is frequently joined on banjo by their younger, scene-stealing brother Owen.  The Snyder Family always takes bluegrass to new levels, melding it with unexpected musical genres while keeping true to their bluegrass roots.
 
Tim White, the hugely popular emcee of the award-winning public television program Song of the Mountains will return to the festival with his band Troublesome Hollow. Their traditional bluegrass and comedy will please and delight festival guests of all ages. Also appearing for the first time at CBC is Christian bluesman Lightnin’ Charlie, whose new CD has been described by Loafer magazine as, “Powerful, polished, fresh, and original. Atomic-powered roots music. Vibrant remakes and superb originals!” 


The Carolina Bible Camp bluegrass festival is America’s only bluegrass festival that promotes Bible study and wholesome music and recreation. The mouth-watering lunch served up in the air-conditioned dining hall, kids’ free activities including old-fashioned sidewalk games and crafts, a Picker’s Place jamming tent, and special vendors and artisans make this event a memorable one. Also included is free admission to the classic car show on the campus. Professional grade, large capacity tents will keep guests comfortable, rain or shine. Handicapped accessible parking and assistance is available, as well as a First Aid tent.
 
For the first time, Carolina Bible Camp Bluegrass Festival will serve up CBC “Happy Camper” coffee. This product is an organic, fair-trade, unique Latin American blend of caffeinated coffee beans with a warm and mellow morning taste. 
 
Tickets: Full Day Pass: $15.00; At the Gate: $20.00
