Bluegrass tribute coming Thursday, 9/17 to Mountain State Fair

There's a special bluegrass event that happens on Thursday nights in Asheville on Brevard Road, just a stone's throw from the WNC Farmers' Market. It's bluegrass night at the Hyatt's, where pickers and singers gather in the "music house" built out back.

We've lost Mr. Hyatt to the heavenly bluegrass band, and we want to say thank you to Mrs. Neila Hyatt, so we're moving the Hyatt Bluegrass night to the Mountain State Fair for one night, Thursday, September 17th at the Heritage Stage at the fair.

We'll have a brand new arts and crafts building in Heritage Circle this year, so it's a great time to say thank you to the Hyatts and celebrate their devotion to the preservation of bluegrass music in the Asheville area.

Picking and singing will start about 7 p.m., and the fair closes at midnight. Who knows how long the music will last! Bring your instrument, just like you would to the Hyatt's. We'll have professional sound set on the stage with plenty of room for everyone.

Mark your calendars for this special night!!! There's no telling who might show up.
