Good Times at Merlefest

Honoring the memory of Eddy Merle Watson, son of the legendary Doc Watson, Merlefest is a four-day outdoor festival that features the best of old and new in Country, Bluegrass, Americana and Folk music. Music lovers from all over the country flock to the hills of North Carolina to attend this event for four days every spring.

From our booth near the main stage this year, we loved hearing Scythian get the crowd moving with their danceable blend of roots folk, infused with Eastern-European gypsy fiddling. NS Cellist Larissa Fedoryka kept the groove heavy under these virtuostic exciting band of musicians.

We also enjoyed seeing many children so excited to try NS’s electric bowed instruments, proving how fun and exciting these instruments are for anyone to play.
