First Annual Outer Banks Bluegrass Festival

Posted by  | October 24, 2012  at 10:10 AM  
   
Stacy Grubb & The Clay Hess Band

 October 5-6 marked the premier of the Outer Banks Bluegrass FestivalThis event is destined to become a yearly pilgrimage for fans of bluegrass, gospel, and a wholesome good time. Held in historic Manteo, NC, the festival grounds (fondly referred to as "Bluegrass Island") provided a postcard-esque backdrop for the bands on stage as sailboats cruised the Roanoke Sound and the setting sun cast shades of magenta and amber across the crowd.
        
The Hickory Project
            
Aside from the presence of yours truly, West Virginia and the Panhandle region were well-represtend on this Road Trip. Drymill Road, Stoney Creek, Stacy Grubb, and The Hillbilly Gypsies showed the crowd what it means to be both wild and wonderful. It appears that people were impressed too since many of these bands are being welcomed back next year with arms wide open!

The Hillbilly Gypsies

While I went into this event partial to the Panhandle contingent, I came out quite fond of a few Outer Banks bands. To any local festival organizers reading this, be sure to add Banjo Island and Drifting Sands to the short list for your next event. They may have the beach to tempt us their way, but we've got the mountains (moonshine), right?!

Other shows deserving of shoutouts include The Hickory Project, Nothin' Fancy, Nu-Blu, and The Whiskey Rebellion, who even managed to cause a mini-rebellion as the VIP section turned into a bit of a dance party :)


For a first-year festival, things were pretty flawless. Aside from a few shuttle sagas, some confusion with a rule or two, and the loss of my press pass, my complaints are few. Planning for an even better Outer Banks Bluegrass Festival in 2013 is well underway as bands are booked and VIP tickets are already selling like crazy!

The Replica handbags are made from the same type of brown sturdy high quality leather that allows them to nicely arch in a very discrete long shape. These Designer handbags are quite thin and rounded with a stitching that goes all the way through their length. The stitching reinforces the shape and firmness of the two handles. You will be surprised to see how natural these <>répliques montres fit on your arm.At the outside there are no pockets or additional storage features. Instead,<>Omega replica watches it has the double leather pull handles that compress the purse and afterwards is used to close the bag by the help of the clasp. Just like on the original handbag, this <>christin dior handbags Togo replica has all these important design particularities and I must say that it replicates them perfectly.
