Sirens on the Mountain festival
Headlined by the storied talent of Grammy Award winner Rickie Lee Jones, this Appalachian summer event celebrating women in the arts also features soul legend Bettye LaVette and World Beat folksters Rising Appalachia, among 17 acts spanning genres from pop to bluegrass, soul to gypsy and folk to jazz.
According to promoter Walt Reis, Sirens on the Mountain promises something to stimulate and satisfy all musical tastes, but tummies and eyes will also be tempted as promoters repeat their promise to present only the highest quality of culinary delights and artistic offerings from some of the region's finest food purveyors and craftspeople.
Several changes and improvements have been made at event, including the addition of Saturday children's activities and a second music stage.
Patrons will also enjoy increased ticketing and camping flexibility, as the festival offers both single day and full weekend passes, free tent camping for persons buying two-day tickets (single day buyers can opt to either stay offsite or camp for a minor fee) and an expanded tree-lined tent camping zone.
Sirens on the Mountain is hosted at Boone's High Country Fairgrounds.
The fairgrounds are located at 748 Roby Greene Road in Boone, just off Old U.S. 421. Coolers are welcome.
