Blues, Brews & BBQ is going to Rock!

One of the big highlight's for Memorial Day Weekend is our two-day Blues, Brews & BBQ Festival - seven bands will compete in a Battle of the Bands, Blues-style.  This year, the talent is deep -- from Charlottesville's premiere boogie-woogie, rhythm and blues dance band, Chicken Head Blues Band, to Cashless Society's rambunctious rockabilly, to a talented young blues duo, Born Crooked, that will blow you away.

Say You Saw Them When

We caught up with Born Crooked while they were playing Charlottesville's Friday's After 5 so that we could film this week's Mountain Minute (below). A brother-sister duo out of Orange County, Hunter Wolfe and his sister ARE (Anna Rose Elizabeth), bring a fresh yet intense twist to traditional blues.  At age 23, Hunter has already won the National Slide Guitar Championship, played on the International Blues Challenge Showcase (twice), and been recognized as a Blues Foundation Generation Blues Scholar.  His sister ARE, at just 18, plays the drums with a stylish ferocity that excites and impresses everyone who sees them play.  Born Crooked will be playing Wintergreen on Sunday at 2:30 pm -- don't miss it!  Someday you'll be bragging to your friends that you saw these two when...

In addition to Blues, Brews & BBQ, we’ll also have The Cliffhanger Challenge Mountain Bike Race & Trail Run, an arts & craft show, block party for kids, outdoor movie, bonfire with s’mores, and a day at the Lake when Lake Monocan opens for the season. See all Memorial Day Weekend Events!
