This morning, organizers shared daily lineups for the 2024 event, which includes Colorado jamgrass ensemble Yonder Mountain String Band and bluegrass fixtures The Steeldrivers on Friday; seminal string band Old Crow Medicine Show and country mainstay Marty Stuart & His Fabulous Superlatives on Saturday; with “Delta Dawn'' hitmaker Tanya Tucker and Peter Rowan & Sam Grisman Project rounding out Sunday. Also on the books that weekend are returning hosts Jerry Douglas and The Earls of Leicester, plus first-time guests Mighty Poplar, Lindsay Lou, Miko Marks, AJ Lee & Blue Summit, Larry & Joe, and nearly a dozen others.

Now entering its third year, Earl Scruggs Music Festival was established in partnership with WNCW 88.7 at Isothermal Community College in Spindale, NC and the Earl Scruggs Center located in Shelby, NC. According to Bluegrass Today, Scruggs Fest “has already risen to the top tier of annual music festivals.” WMOT in Nashville adds, “[Scruggs’ family] would have been impressed by this tribute to the most influential bluegrass musician in history;” while Grateful Web dubs the festival “a truly exceptional event.” With a standout lineup featuring the best in traditional roots music and progressive fusions, Earl Scruggs Music Festival will continue to illuminate the profound impact that Scruggs had on American culture, while uplifting fresh and noteworthy voices in the genre. A portion of proceeds will support the festival’s beneficiaries, the Earl Scruggs Center and Isothermal Community College, who serve Earl Scruggs’ home region of the Carolina Foothills with cultural programming through multiple channels.

Earl Scruggs Music Festival will once again take place at Tryon International Equestrian Center in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Known for its roster of rotating events including world class equestrian competitions, festive holiday celebrations, concerts, and more, the immaculate campus will serve as a quintessential backdrop for the festival, which promises on-site lodging, dining, and comfortable amenities throughout the event weekend.
