Here’s what happened at the 6th Annual event last August:

Each artist shared his or her unique musical talents one song at a time, then passed the mic to the next. The stars included: Dave Wilson (of Chatham County Line), Kamara Thomas, Brett HarrisSteph Stewart, Mary Johnson Rockers, and Lakota John Locklear!

It’s the kind of voice that carries warmth and tenderness, a voice that is unmistakably his own and embodies everything that’s raw, pure and beautiful about the blues.


dr.bacon.smFollowing the circle, festival favorite, super fun-time band, Dr. Bacon helped us dance into the night! These guys started playing on the Coffee Barn Stage during the Shakori Hills GrassRoots festival and have found a big spot in our hearts. What a great way to close out the night!

There were local food trucks, local craft beer, and the Lil’ Coffee Barn was open with coffee and snacks. NC Stars is a family-friendly event and all are welcome to camp overnight.
