Welcome to the Charlie Poole Music Festival. Through the years, this event has featured many of the legends in Americana music – Mike Seeger, Norman & Nancy Blake, Tony Rice, J.D. Crowe, the Osborne Brothers, Alice Gerrard, Tony Trischka, and Bryan Bowers – as well as some of the brightest stars of today – The Carolina Chocolate Drops, the Wiyos, and Uncle Earl – all in honor of a true icon in American music – Charlie Poole. This year we are proud to welcome David Holt, Grammy-winning master musician and storyteller, who will receive this year's Lifetime Achievement Award. Join us in historic Eden, North Carolina - the place where Poole and his North Carolina Ramblers worked in the textile mills when not out rambling and making music that would live forever.
