The first Bailey Blues and Bluegrass Festival, a music event that’s blue down to its roots, is set from 6-10 p.m. Friday, June 3, at Bailey Park in downtown Winston-Salem, North Carolina. The free event is sponsored by Wake Forest Innovation Quarter and the Blue Ridge Music Center and is open to the public.
Performers include local Camel City legends Bump & Logie (Bubba Klinefelter & Logie Meachum), Southern “old-time soul Americana” act The Buck Stops Here and festival headliner, award-winning bluegrass band Town Mountain. Organizers encourage music lovers to come out and enjoy a night of folk tales, soulful blues and bluegrass jam sessions.
Food and beverage will be available for purchase, but no carry-in alcohol permitted. Low back chairs and blankets will be permitted. Dogs are welcome but must remain leashed.
Street parking is available along Patterson Avenue between 4th and 5th Streets and in the P1 parking lot located across the street from Wake Forest Biotech Place and accessible via North Chestnut Street.
The backup rain location will be inside Wake Forest Biotech Place.
Save the date! The Bailey Blues and Bluegrass Festival will return on Oct. 7, featuring Grammy Award-winning artist Mike Farris.
