A diverse lineup of musical performers, led by American music icon and Grammy-winner Peter Rowan, will fill the autumn air with music Sept. 28-29 at the annual Sautee Jamboree.
The arts and music festival at the Sautee Nacoochee Center marks its seventh year.
The music starts at 6 p.m. Friday and runs through Saturday night.
Rowan fronted the classic “newgrass” ensemble Old and in the Way (along with Jerry Garcia and David Grisman), and broke in with the godfather of bluegrass himself, Bill Monroe. He will cap the two-day music with his Saturday night performance.
Sol Driven Train, one of the most eclectic and electrifying Southeastern-bands bands touring on the festival circuit, will headline Friday night’s performances.
Other performers at the outdoor music venue will include:
Col. Bruce Hampton, who formed and led cult monster bands like the Late Bronze Age, Fiji Mariners and the Aquarium Rescue Unit.
The Mosier Brothers, led by banjo player and singer, the Rev. Jeff Mosier and guitarist Johnny Mosier. They have performed at every Sautee Jamboree, first with Bluegrass Undergrass, and most recently as the Mosier Brothers.
Yarn, based in Brooklyn and followed cross-country by its loyal fans called the “‘Yarmy.” It brings its wide-ranging American/alt-country sound to Sautee for the first time.
Caroline Aiken, another veteran of the Sautee stage, is a Grammy-nominated songwriter and guitarist who has shared the stage with the Indigo Girls and Bonnie Raitt.
Tommy Talton, one of the most respected guitarists touring today, has taken the southern music scene by storm in recent years with a new band.
Athens-based The Corduroy Road, one of the South’s hottest indy roots bands. The quintet exudes aggressive punk rock energy.
American Anodyne brings its razor-edged, whiskey-soaked Southern rock back to the Jamboree.
Free camping is available, with food and drink vendors, art and face painting and a cash raffle. Tickets are $40 for the weekend in advance, $50 at the gate. Friday tickets are $20, Saturday only $30.
