The Street Dance on July 26th & August 23rd features Blue Ridge Tradition playing a unique mix of traditional and not-so-traditional bluegrass music. They perform crowd-favorites such as “Rocky Top,” “Salty Dog,” “Tennessee Waltz,” and “John Henry.” The band incorporates some great original songs in their shows. They’re not afraid to include crossover material from artists such as Hank Williams, Bob Dylan Chuck Berry, and others into their well-defined, classic sound.
Southern Connection Cloggers are a local group, based in Hendersonville, NC. The team is under the direction of Certified Judge and Certified Clogging Instructor, Chip Summey.
