HARMONY, N.C. — The Grammy award-winning bluegrass band “The Infamous Stringdusters” will perform at a socially distanced outdoor concert series on Friday, April 23rd and Saturday, April 24th in Harmony, N.C.
Mtn Roots Management, a N.C. based event production company, has partnered with VanHoy Farms to host the pod-style outdoor music series spanning two nights on its historic 107-acre property.
Event officials say they have developed the “pod-style” ticketing structure, with 8 x 10 viewing plots available for purchase, in order to keep everyone socially distanced (with tickets ranging from $200 to $320 for a group of four).
Additional measures including requiring masks to be worn anywhere outside of the pods, mobile beverage sales, and a food pre-order system has been put into place in order to limit contact and keep everyone safe, according to a news release.
Event officials say special guests Sierra Hull and Justin Moses will perform on Friday night, and the legendary bluegrass pickers, The Travelin’ McCourys, will perform Saturday night at the music series.
Mtn Roots Management CEO Bob Robertson says with the COVID-19 pandemic nearing its one year anniversary, his hope is to create an opportunity for live music lovers to get their fix without compromising safety.
Robertson says “We all miss live music. It’s time for us to get back to it, cautiously. I have all the faith in the world that our team is ready to take on that challenge.”
Robertson says he hopes to extend the live music program through the summer under the bill “VanHoy Farms Revival Music Series,” with a promising lineup of artists to be announced in the near future.
Andy Hall, with The Infamous Stringdusters, says the pandemic has made scheduling shows that much harder and is thankful for the opportunity to perform in-person once again.
“Having something solid to look forward too is fantastic,” Hall says. “You realize as a musician how much the live, in person connection with fans motivates you; we’ve been missing that.”
VanHoy Farms, located on Jericho Road in Harmony, N.C., is an ideal location to safely gather with its rich cultural legacy, rock-solid infrastructure, and spacious setting, officials say.
