Timeline Photos On behalf of the 4th generation of the Van Hoy family, I would like to share a small portion of what lies in our hearts as we look forward to May 2013 - and potentially beyond. Fiddler's Grove is a special place where we, as the 4th generation, grew up watching our grandparents, Harper and Wanona (Papaw and Nanny), demonstrate valuable character traits - love, preservation, appreciation, hard work and drive, dedication and sacrifice, patience, and so much more. We were blessed to have such influences in our lives and to come together as a family each year to help them do what they loved - and what we grew to love ourselves. We also watched our parents - Dick and Gerry, David and Genie, Hank and Polly - model these same traits. All for love. For the "great grandkids" the music and heritage are so important - but the time spent together with one another and our extended Fiddler's Grove family making memories is another valuable aspect that we thank God for. What a blessing!
We are pulling together as a family with the tremendous help of amazing family friends such as Jessie from The Cockman Family who is handling this year's RV reservations, Robin Warren who is lining up a talented stage schedule, and Lissy Rosemont and the Beaver Family who are providing many aspects of time and talent, and as a team, we are dedicated to providing the best festival we can this Memorial Day weekend.
Although it may not be as it always has been, it WILL be. We hope you will join us and we look forward to seeing what the years beyond may hold. Thank you for your continued love and support.
We'll see you on May 24! Visit post

WNCBluegrass.com Question: Can Asheville support a bluegrass venue? I know lots of people love bluegrass in the area but when I go to events in the area with major bluegrass bands, the room is half empty. Any ideas on what we can do to fix that? May 10, 2013, 4:44 pm
WNCBluegrass.com Blue Highway was great. As far as audience: Downstairs was full. Upstairs not as much so. More room to grow. :-)
May 11, 2013, 3:18 pm Scott Woody We had 160 people at the Blue Highway Concert... but considering it was LEAF weekend, we were pretty pleased. Blue Highway was pleased and they have already asked for a booking this winter... it's building. The Tuesday Night Bluegrass Session is doing quite well. Thanks for promoting bluegrass. Isis Restaurant and Music Hall plans on bringing more.. Kruger Brothers are coming June 12th and 13th http://isisasheville.com/events/the-kruger-brothers/
