Reevestock Music Festival 2018

Leave a comment

In what has become a trend for many bands, Charlotte-based folk-rock band Time Sawyer is once again hosting the Reevestock Music Festival in its hometown of Elkin, North Carolina, on Aug. 4-5, 2017, featuring none other than Time Sawyer, the Marcus King BandTown MountainDavid ChildersWilliam Wild and the Corey Hunt Band.
Started in 2011, the festival began as a fundraiser “for our beloved Reeves Theater, one the town’s oldest buildings, as we looked to aid in the buildings restoration,” Time Sawyer writes on its website. “In 2014, the Reeves building was purchased and is now privately owned.  The group is finishing the rebuilding and it will re-open as a performing arts venue with a bar and restaurant.

“Reevestock as a festival lives on, pushing into the future, still as a benefit festival put on by The Foothills Arts Council. We have created the Reevestock Scholarship Fund from the money raised each year at the festival to serve as our fundraising project. These scholarships are made available to Elkin and Starmount seniors looking to continue their education at any two-year program, four-year program, or technical school.“Reevestock offers something for everyone in the family and looks to benefit the community in every way possible. Great music for all ages, food and drinks made available by your favorite restaurants, and even activities for the kids. Music helps to bring us all together and that’s what Reevestock is all about. We hope to see you all the first weekend in August for some great music and fun.”
