If you’re in Abingdon, Virginia, or headed to the area the first weekend in June, check out
Wolf Hills Brewing’s The Howling Craft Beer and Music Festival on June 2-3, 2017. The brewery is located at 350 Park St SE. The festival will feature Drivin N Cryin, The Trongone Band (fresh off some amazing sets at Rooster Walk 9), Time Sawyer, Sarah Shook and the Disarmers, Dave Eggar, Amythyst Kiah and many more.

According to the website, “We welcome back Pointer Brothers to The Howling for the third year running, Wolf Hills’ own Chris Burcher (mandolin, vocals), Claiborne Woodall (guitar, vocals) and Dave Reimer (Bass) perform their unique mix of Americana, Jazz, Dawg, and Bluegrass.”

Tickets for Friday, June 2 are $10 and Saturday, June 3, are $20 or the Wolf Pack ticket for both nights and parking is $32.

From the website, “We’ve been Dave Eggar fans for a long time and we are thrilled to welcome him back for The Howling on June 3. There’s no real way to describe a virtuoso cellist who brings a carnival of other singers, musicians, dancers, stompers, twirlers and who knows who else he may try to fit on the stage. It’s an experience like no other — interacting with the crowd (most times barefoot and possibly playing a concerto while laying in the floor), mixing genres and with a special love for Appalachian music. Above all, Dave could be playing literally anywhere in the world, but is as humble as they come and a true gentleman. The price of admission is worth it just to see him.”

The website continues, “We like honest, real country music and we know you do too. Sarah Shook & The Disarmers – named one of the ten country artists you need to know by Rolling Stone – fits that bill and then some. With a sneer, a bite, and no apologies, Shook’s original songs take on relationships gone wrong, bad decisions, cruel ironies, and excessive alcohol consumption for damn good reasons. They’ll be taking the main stage at 6 pm on June 3, don’t miss it. Amythyst Kiah and Her Chest of Glass play on June 2 at The Howling at Wolf Hills.
