Some of you know that the Charlotte based band Time Sawyer is not only a favorite of many Common Chord members, but is also the founder and organizer of Reevestock, a music festival in their hometown of Elkin, North Carolina, just an hour up I-77 from Charlotte. The festival is Saturday, August 6th, with a free kickoff party Friday night, August 5th. This is the sixth year for the festival, which is a fundraiser for scholarships for students in Elkin. Time Sawyer will be performing Saturday and Common Chord alumni Sinners and Saints will be performing at the Friday night kickoff party. It’s a small, relaxed, very family-friendly festival in a setting which really has to be seen to be believed. I’ll show you a few pictures I took previous years so you can get an idea of what I mean. There will be lots of Common Chord members attending so you’ll see familiar faces all day.
Tickets are just $15 for Saturday. Kids 12 and under are free. Friday is free.
The Saturday lineup:
Phil Cook and the Guitarheels
Josh Daniel/Mark Schimick Project
Friday Night Kickoff Party:
Sinners & Saints
Luke Mears Band
