April 24, 2014. While the above video is from 2012, it provides a taste of what to expect at MerleFest 2014 – great music and loads of fun. MerleFest begins today on Thursday, April 24. The gates open at 2:30 p.m. on Thursday, and the festival runs through Sunday.
As always the lineup is stellar with more than 130 musical acts performing on 13 stages. On Thursday, The Duhks, Scythian, Carolina Chocolate Drops and Alan Jackson perform from 5:30 to 11 p.m. on the Watson Stage. Perhaps best of all, RaysWeather.com lists Thursday as a “Five-Racoons” weather day, which means the weather is going to be just as good as the music flowing from the stage.
