#MerleFestontheRoad is an ensemble show with a rotating cast of past and present MerleFest artists selected to represent the festival’s mission of celebrating “traditional plus music.” The show tours the South in late winter every year to highlight the artists and to promote the popular Americana music festival founded by the legendary Doc Watson. The MerleFest artists for the 2018 show are The Way Down Wanderers, The Barefoot Movement and Andy May.
2017 marks the 30th celebration of MerleFest. About 80,000 music lovers attend the festival over the course of four days each April. Further information about the festival is at http://www.merlefest.org.
