Volume 5 to headline Piedmont Bluegrass Festival June 2
One of THE hottest bands in bluegrass, Volume 5, will headline the third annual Piedmont College Bluegrass Festival June 2 at the Arrendale Amphitheater on the campus in Demorest. The all-day event will also feature Nash Street, back by popular demand after a solo concert in March.
With a number one song, “Anywhere is Home Again, and the number two album, “Children of the Mountain,” Volume 5 is an exciting new band that is blazing their own red-hot trail on the bluegrass scene. This group of talented performers includes Glen Harrell (fiddle & vocals), Patton Wages (banjo, & vocals), Chris Williamson (bass & vocals), and Jesse Daniel (mandolin & vocals). While Volume Five is a traditional band, their soulful singing, dead-on harmonies, and precision picking set them apart from other bands of this style.
Beginning at 10 a.m., featured performers will include Bluebilly Grit, Shoal Creek Band, John Oliver & Carmel Ridge, Oliver Rice & the Blue Ridge Mountain Boys, Nash Street, and The Foxfire Boys.
Admission to the all-day event is $15, with children under age 5 admitted free. A four-ticket family pass is $45, and a headliner-only pass is $8. Piedmont students, faculty and staff are also admitted free.
The Arrendale Amphitheater is adjacent to the Swanson Center for Performing Arts and Communications and features open-air stadium seating with plenty of room to bring your favorite folding chair or cushions and cooler. No alcoholic beverages are allowed, and concessions will be available.
