Bluegrass music, with its name derived from Bill Monroe and His Bluegrass Boys from the Bluegrass State of Kentucky, is a true American roots music influenced by the music of Appalachia which blends together Irish, Scottish, English and African-American music. We will be celebrating this music style at the Annual Big Lick Bluegrass Festival.
Decades ago, Big Lick was once a town, but one night burned to the ground. A salt lick and a couple of houses remain. The Big Lick community is named for the large salt lick, which once attracted many deer.
Concession stands with food and music will be available. Bring a lawn chair. Photos permitted.
The Big Lick Festival Park is located at 640 South Oak Ridge Road, Oakboro, just off N.C. 24/27 south of Albemarle.
