To know me is to know that the lineup announcement for the second annual 2018 Cold Mountain Music Festival at Lake Logan set for June 8-9 has me pretty excited.
They had me at Shovels & Rope, Mandolin Orange, River Whyless, The Steel Wheels and Jon Stickley Trio, and that’s not all the acts!
The event will raise funds and awareness for Lake Logan and Camp Henry. The centerpiece of the 300-acre property is a mile-long lake surrounded by the Shining Rock Wilderness Area of Pisgah National Forest, according to the website.
