Master Musicians Festival builds to a rousing finale for growing audience

By Matt Wickstrom

Since 1994 the Master Musicians Festival has brought marquee names to Somerset and the Lake Cumberland region including The Avett Brothers, Old Crow Medicine Show and Willie Nelson. This weekend’s 24th annual gathering boasted fan favorites Colter Wall, Old 97’s, Dawes and Blackberry Smoke on stage at Festival Field at Somerset Community College.

As I arrived at the festival on Friday evening I was greeted by an enthusiastic cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “The Chain” by Nashville-based folk/Americana group Roanoke, led by the elegant harmonies of Joey Beesley and Taylor Dupuis.
