Music is the lifeblood of the Triangle, and for fifty years, Carrboro’s live music venue Cat’s Cradle has been the heart that keeps it pumping. But like many independent music venues across the country, Cat’s Cradle is in trouble. With its concert calendar canceled and the building shuttered due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the club is struggling to cover rent and basic overhead costs. With the prospect of drastically reduced revenue even after shows return, there is a growing need to help it survive until things normalize.

North Carolina Brewers and Music Festival will celebrate its 10th anniversary at Historic Rural Hill in Huntersville, NC on May 8-9, 2020. The annual event, which pairs live music with craft beer and community, will welcome GRAMMY-winning bluegrass outfit Steep Canyon Rangers, roots troubadour Hayes Carll, regional newgrass pioneers Acoustic Syndicate, acclaimed songwriter Jill Andrews, and a variety of additional performers to its stage this year.

Hosted every year by presiding band Yonder Mountain String Band, the four-day event will see top-billing sets from other veteran performers like The Infamous Stringdusters and Trampled By Turtles, as well as invite newcomers from across the musical spectrum, like Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, Dark Star Orchestra, Galactic and more.
