Andy’s sets: Details to come
Acoustic Kids Showcases: Details to come
This will be Andy’s 18th year of bringing his own brand of rootsy music to MerleFest. Once again, he’ll perform his own sets and host three Acoustic Kids Showcases- with Andy May and one Acoustic Kids Ambassadors set.
MerleFest, which was founded in 1988 in Memory of Eddy Merle Watson, has a mission of celebrating “traditional plus” music:
The Music of MerleFest is “traditional-plus” and Doc Watson himself described it best: “When Merle and I started out we called our music ‘traditional-plus,’ meaning the traditional music of the Appalachian region plus whatever other styles we were in the mood to play. Since the beginning, the people of the college and I have agreed that the music of MerleFest is ‘traditional-plus’.”
