Hang on… let me check. Yes, The Acoustic Cafe is listed on the “Festivals” page of MusicSceneAL.com. The list is in alphabetical order. However, if I were to list them in order of preference, in my book, The Acoustic Cafe should be at the TOP of the list!
To be fair, I have not attended all the festivals on the list, and comparing the festivals is sort of like comparing apples to oranges. For example, The Opp Rattlesnake Rodeo has music, but catching rattlesnakes is NOT the main attraction at The Acoustic Cafe.
The Acoustic Cafe started back in 1996. In the early years, there were two shows each year… one in the Spring and another in the Fall. The past few years have had one show each year on Memorial Day Weekend. Well, yes, there was a second show in the Fall of 2010. I guess we’ll all have to keep an eye on the website to see if there will be a second show this year as well. But maybe that’s getting the cart before the horse.
This year’s Memorial Day Weekend show will include Carolina Chocolate Drops, The Trishas, Dread Clampitt and lot’s more. Check the page for a full list of fabulous artists on this year’s lineup. While you’re at it, check out everything about the festival. Those of you who have been in the past already know why I would list them at the TOP of the list. If you’ve never attended, you are in for a wonderful experience!
