ASHLAND Old Crow Medicine Show, Whiskey Myers and Blues Traveler are among the artists performing at the Foxfire Music and Arts Festival, which takes place September 24-25 at Ashland Riverfront.
The Paramount Arts Center has announced its plans for the festival, presented by Delta Marriott and The Winchester Restaurant in Ashland. Art vendors and live art exhibitions will also be an important part of the event.
“We are absolutely thrilled to have such a large set of national headliners for both nights and we’re also thrilled to showcase local and regional talent from our region.” David Miller, Paramount’s marketing director, said. “This event is a celebration of the artistic heritage of all three states, and we are proud to showcase both the music and the art that our region is famous for.
Miller said that due to uncertainty over COVID-19 guidelines, the theater believed an outdoor concert was appropriate; this idea became the festival.
“There are currently no planned restrictions that will be in place in September,” Miller said. “We hope to do this one ‘the old fashioned way’. That said, we will definitely stay in touch with the local health department to learn about best practices and their recommendations on how to make this event as safe and healthy as possible. “
The full range is:
Old Crow Medicine Show, Ona, Lucero, Buffalo Wabs & The Price Hill Hustle, Eric Bolander, Charlie Woods and Deep Hollow, Patrick Leland McKnight.
Whiskey Myers, Blues Traveler, Morgan Wade, John R. Miller, Josh Brown and The Hard Livin ‘Legends, Shelby Lore, Cole Chaney.
The inhabitants will be presented in several areas.
“We wanted to give back and showcase the artists of our region. We don’t have an exact number yet, but as we map out the festival, we want to offer as many local and regional artists as possible the opportunity to sell their work, do live demonstrations of their art, and to connect with new fans as well as other artisans, ”he said.

Miller said they didn’t know what to expect in terms of crowd size, but the headliners are groups that either sold previous shows at Paramount or were too big to have at the Indoor Theater. .
“We know there will be thousands at this festival, the question is how many thousands. And that’s a question we’re excited to find the answer to, ”Miller said.
