Shakori Hills Grassroots fest hits N.C. this weekend


Key performers include The Del McCoury Band, The Carolina Chocolate Drops, Nnenna Freelon, The Duhks, Donna and the Buffalo, and Eileen Ivers. It is a festival, so all the typical fair fodder will be present: food al fresco, artists and craft vendors, poetry readings, instrumental competitions, and a slew of activities for children. But this year's events also include a sustainability fair, where green enthusiasts can share ideas on environmental preservation.

Tickets can be bought in advance, with discounts availalbe for festival-long passes. Click here for more info.
