Live music starts at 5:15 with The Weathered Rose. At 6:45pm, Spoon Fight takes the stage and at 8:30pm. To conclude the evening festivities, Appalachian Jam Rock band Fletcher’s Grove (pictured above) will perform a high-energy show at 9:30pm. This group mixes pulsating bass lines, dual-guitar solos, and an eclectic percussion section that makes standing still nearly impossible. By maintaining a solid focus on perfecting musical intricacy and creating seamless improvisation, Fletcher’s Grove has captured the imaginations of thousands in the Mountain State and beyond.
“Since forming around 2007, Fletcher’s Grove has become a staple on jam band festivals, and has developed a fan base that allows them to consecutively sell out venues like 123 Pleasant Street in Morgantown.” – Huntington Herald-Dispatch
