Starvy Creek 2016

July 4, 2016

From the music to the food to the company, bluegrass fans look forward to Starvy Creek's annual 4th of July festival.

The rain didn't dampen spirits and the shows went on as planned. Fans were treated to bands like Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver, Michael Cleveland & Flamekeeper, David Parmley & Cardinal Tradition, The Bluegrass Martins, and more.

Back at the merchandise table, we had a chance to sit, play music,
visit with old friends, and meet new one

Thank you to everyone who came out to see us and stopped by the merchandise table. After nearly 20 years of performing at Starvy Creek, we still can't wait to return.
