Jerry Butler and John Wade & The Blue-J’s are headlining this year’s festival Having spent the last few years touring with Pine Mountain Railroad, and most recently with Lorraine Jordan and Carolina Road, Jerry has now formed his own band. Jerry and John both are award-winning and seasoned musicians, while their three new band members, Bobby Clark, Tim Goins, and Daniel Oxendine round out the group with beautifully tight harmonies and outstanding playing. Their sound is fresh, as they blend bluegrass classics, gospel, and some country favorites done in their own style.
