The second annual Darin & Brooke Aldridge Music Festival had a successful run at the Coot Williams Road site near Cherryville, NC last weekend. Promoters John and Linda Hunsucker, working closely with the Aldridge team provided upgraded sound and a lineup strengthened in breadth and quality. Despite breezy, chilly weather culminating in cold evenings, fans responded positively by filling the tent on both days for the high quality music and many opportunities to see local as well as national bands. The Hunsuckers, under the rubric of The Catawba Valley Music Revival are seeking to encourage local bands and live music in the four county area west of Charlotte and east of the Smokey Mountains.
The weekend opened on Friday morning with a golf tournament held at the Cleveland Country Club. The eighteen hole captain's choice best ball event provided a fine start for those who enjoy combining their bluegrass with golf. All the participants had a fine time during the morning event which concluded with a barbecue and prize ceremony.
