The Earl Scruggs Center and WNCW are proud to announce the inaugural Earl Scruggs Music Festival coming September 4 – 5, 2020, to the Tryon International Equestrian Center in Mill Spring, NC. Celebrating the legacy of an American music legend, the Earl Scruggs Music Festival will bring together artists from bluegrass, Americana, blues, and other roots music genres to celebrate the pioneering vision of Earl Scruggs.

The festival will feature 20 artists over two days, plus music workshops, in a setting at the foot of the Blue Ridge mountains. Camping, lodging, restaurants, and other amenities will be available onsite at the Tryon International Equestrian Center.

“We are bringing some incredible Americana and bluegrass artists to the festival, many of whom personally knew Earl Scruggs. All of them were influenced by him and his music in some way” says Martin, “This community and part of the state has a long history of producing great musicians and appreciating good music, so we want to celebrate that tradition with the inaugural Earl Scruggs Music Festival.”
