Appalachian Rising @ Carter Fold

The Carter Family Fold re-opens, Sat., Aug. 28 with Appalachian Rising, featuring the Blue Ridge Girls, Jeff Little Trio, Martha Spencer, Ronnie Williams, and Whitetop Mountain Band.  Doors open at 4 p.m. with music starting at 5 p.m.

Aside from the Fold re-opening, the highlight of the evening will be the drawing for the Wayne Henderson Guitar.  From his Galax shop, Henderson has provided musical instruments to rock legends like Eric Clapton.  This is a real chance to own an heirloom guitar, one that is beautiful to play and that can be passed down to future generations.  Raffle tickets for the guitar are $5 each and will be available up to intermission when the raffle is drawn.

Admission is $15 for adults; $10 for children 12 to six; with children under six admitted free.  Tickets available at the door and online.  Watch for details.
