The weather is getting nice and everyone is eagerly awaiting the outdoor festival season here in western North Carolina. Last year, Rhythm & Brews was introduced as a new summer festival in Hendersonville. Combining great music and great local beer from breweries such as Southern Appalachian and Sierra Nevada, Rhythm and Brews was a great hit. Back by popular demand, I give you the 2nd annual Rhythm and Brews 2014.
The venue is located between 3rd and 4th Avenues one block east of Main Street and starts at 5:00 pm. A stage featuring regional rock and bluegrass music provides the free entertainment, while tickets can be purchased for some delicious craft beer and wine. Blue Ridge Bicycle Club and Sycamore Cycles will again be offering a “bike corral”, which provides free valet parking for people who wish to ride their bicycles and not worry about leaving them unattended. Dancing is encouraged and if this year’s event is anything like last year, there will be no shortage of participants.
The current music lineup is as follows:
- May 15 – The Broadcast
- June 19 – Balsam Range
- July 17 – The Fritz
- August 21 – Sol Drive Train
- September 18 – Blue Dogs
