Your favorite music festival is happening — you guessed it–this weekend! What’s even better news than that? Ohiolina has expanded to a two-day festival.
For those of you who are new, were abroad, or just dead asleep for the past couple of year: Ohiolina is “a celebration of the music and culture rooted in the I-77 corridor from Ohio to North Carolina. Exhibiting a deep love of Ohio and North Carolina and all ground in between, Ohiolina aims to celebrate the unique traditions of the region: folk, bluegrass and the local culinary movements.”
The 2016 musical lineup will feature energetic fan favorite the Hackensaw Boys, Nashville-based Americana band The Howlin’ Brothers and former Old Crow Medicine Show frontman Willie Watson. The full festival lineup includes a masterful combination of folk, rock and bluegrass—Ohiolina 2016 will also feature Honey and Houston, Buffalo Wabs and the Price Hill Hustle, Erika Hughes and the Well Mannered, Fox Valley Harvest, Joe Rollin Porter, Grant Street Grifters, Marisa Anderson, Noah Shull, Riley Baugus, Rushad Eggleston, The Salty Caramels and Six Miles to Nellie.
All of this sounds like a ton of fun and it’s really close by. Ohiolina will be in Ariel Foundation Park this weekend, with shows starting as early as 11 am.
