MERLEFEST 2023

Dates: April 27-30, 2023

Location: Wilkes Community College; Wilkesboro, North Carolina.

Line-Up: TBA

Tickets: TBA

Following 2022's fantastic event, it's been announced that Merlefest 2023 will take place the weekend of 27-30 April. Four days of authentic and wondrous country, Americana and Roots will be on show once again in memory of the late Eddy Merle Watson.

While there are yet to be any acts confirmed for 2023's festival, the event will return to its familiar grounds at Wilkes Community College in Wilkesboro, North Carolina.

2022's festival welcomed such luminaries as Emmylou Harris, Allison Russell, Old Crow Medicine Show, Josh Turner, Natalie Hemby, Tenille Townes, The Wood Brothers, Greensky Bluegrass, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and Trampled By Turtles, of which Holler and so many others got to enjoy!

Originally hosted by folk music legend and Grammy Award-winner Doc Watson until his passing in 2012, Merlefest was named after Doc's late son, Eddie Merle Watson, who died in a tragic tractor accident.

Merlefest is always an absolute cert in Holler's calendar, and we can't wait to return in 2023!
