Mocksville, NC – It’s a Holiday Homecoming for The Piedmont Opry, as we celebrate one year of the Opry at Farmington! Americana, Bluegrass and Traditional Country singers and musicians will be making their way to Farmington Community & Events Center on Thanksgiving Friday, November 23rd, as George Hamilton V brings the Piedmont Opry back to town. George is a 30-year veteran of the Grand Ole Opry and has traveled around the world, as both a solo artist, and with his father, Winston Salem native and Grand Ole Opry Legend, George Hamilton IV.
The Piedmont Opry is a fusion of local artists, great music, comedy and good clean fun for the whole family. George’s goal is “for each Piedmont Opry to feature talented ‘locals’ from in and around Farmington, NC and to introduce Regional and sometimes National touring Americana, Bluegrass, Country and Roots Music Artists and Bands.” Farmington Community & Events Center is the perfect home for the Piedmont Opry, as the old schoolhouse provides the nostalgic setting for a show that brings in the best of the Piedmont and Mountain music of North Carolina. The Director and Board are excited to welcome visitors to the treasure of these “National Historic Places” designated buildings.
The Holiday Homecoming will feature musical groups. as well as some great music from “The Farmington Bluegrass Jammers.” The group “One Fret Over" from Salisbury & Kernersville, North Carolina is a group of award-winning musicians. The band has won ribbons at several fiddle conventions, including a 1st place in Youth Band at the 2017 Alleghany Fiddler Convention and 2nd place in Youth Band at the 2017 Old Fiddlers Convention in Galax, VA. They are a very talented young group, with members ranging in age from 11-15. “Hazy Rudge Bluegrass Band” is a crowd favorite, playing a blend of bluegrass standards and their own original music. Hazy Ridge is a multiple award-winning Piedmont Triad band. They took home 3rd place in the 2016 “Got To Be NC” festival’s Bluegrass Band Competition. Mona Jo & Friends join the line-up with her unique style of music and comedy. Often performing in Nashville, Tennessee, Mona Jo is a talented banjo picker and singer/songwriter, and one of the Piedmont Opry favorites.
