On Saturday, June 8, the doors of the 100 year-old historic Murray’s Mill will be opened to the sounds of guitars, fiddles and good times with The Murray’s Mill Spring Bluegrass Music Festival, sponsored by the Catawba County Historical Association and United Arts Council of Catawba County.
This year’s event will be highlighted by performances by “The Sigmon Stringers” and “The Cockman Family” bluegrass bands.
The Stringers, a three-generation bluegrass band from Newton, has something to offer both the young and old. The award winning band has played many venues on the east coast including Merle Fest and a spot opening for Doc Watson at the Soldiers Reunion Celebration in Newton.
