It’s officially in the history books. After months and months of planning and coordination, and a somewhat soggy start to the day, The 1st Brew Ridge Trail Music Festival ended on a a very high note! Nelson County Life Magazine was a co-sponsor and emcee for the day long event.

Though the day started off with rain and clouds, the sun appeared by early afternoon the music was in full swing!

The music lineup featured headliner Sons of Bill, fresh off their 2009 Bonnaroo Arts and Music Festival performance and sold out CD Release show at the Paramount Theatre in Charlottesville. The Infamous Stringdusters, whose 2007 album “Fork In the Road” was the IBMA Album of the year, will take the stage before Sons of Bill. Rounding out the lineup was Jesse Harper, William Walter & Tucker Rogers, Robbing Mary and Earl Knox.

Lots & lots of fun and dancing!
