After taking two years off due to COVID, the annual benefit concert returns to Lewisburg, West Virginia for two days this year with a stacked lineup, led by the great Tyler Childers.
The rest of the performers include Galactic, Margo Price, Lucero, Arlo McKinley, Lost Dog Street Band, The Vince Herman Band, TK & The Holy Know-Nothings, Jeremy Pinnell, Buffalo Wabs & The Price Hill Hustle, Tommy Prine and Laid Back Country Picker.
The official after-party will include some of Appalachia’s most promising young talent in Logan Halstead and Cole Chaney.
This whole benefit concert contributes to a great cause, with the goal of the event being to raise funds and awareness to combat opioid addiction through a wide array of projects and programs from youth prevention, healthy lifestyles and wellness to recovery houses and recovery to work.
All of the proceeds go to Healing Appalachia, and the festival will be held at the state fair grounds of West Virginia on September 23rd and 24th:
