NORRIS, TN — The best Bluegrass, Gospel and Old-Time music in the South will resonate across the beautiful grounds of the Museum of Appalachia from October 10th through October 12th.

This year’s line-up includes over 70 national, regional and local musicians, performing on five unique outdoor stages, throughout the pastoral Museum setting. In celebration of 35 years of this award winning festival, organizers have put together the strongest lineup in event history, including Grammy award winner and multi-talented, Marty Raybon and Full Circle; International Bluegrass Music Association male vocalist of the year, Junior Sisk & Ramblers Choice; Jeff Brown & Still Lonesome; Grammy nominated Della Mae; “Entertainers of the Year” and “Vocal Group of the Year”, The Gibson Brothers; and the multi-award winning group, Lonesome River Band.

Appearing again this year are Grammy nominated, Blue Highway; Broadcaster of the Year, Chris Jones and the Night Drivers; the award winning Darrell Webb Band; the highly recognized Blue Moon Rising, a top 10 Bluegrass album holder; Grits & Soul, Jesse Gregory & Faultline, and the legendary Paul Williams and the Victory Trio. Joining these top artists is one of the most successful bluegrass bands of all time, seven time International Bluegrass Music Association “Vocal Group of the Year” with multiple Grammy and Dove award nominations and IBMA Hall of Fame inductee, Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver.

Perennial favorites back at Homecoming this year are Leroy Troy, Ramona Jones, The Dismembered Tennesseans, Daniel Rothwell and his grandfather, legendary buck dancer, Thomas Maupin, The Stewart Family, Dale Jett of the Carter Family, Russ & Becky Jeffers, and Jimbo Whaley and Greenbriar. Scores of additional musicians will perform all day, each day, over the course of this three day event.

Tennessee Fall Homecoming, much more than a music festival, includes historic demonstrations such as spinning, weaving, sorghum making, blacksmithing and sawmilling; with heritage arts and crafts such as tatting, whittling, lye soap making, leather working and hand crafted white oak baskets. Tour the entire Museum of Appalachia complex, feast on fine Southern fare and Appalachian delights, and take the opportunity to meet regionally and nationally known Southern writers.
