Festival for the Eno

When: Thu., July 4, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. and Sat., July 6, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. 2013

The 34-year-old Festival for the Eno admirably continues to recognize the changing faces of the cities that surround it, booking bands that not only speak to potential ticket buyers but also speak of this region itself. This year's two-day lineup (Thursday and Saturday only) flips from the blues of wizened masters such as John Dee Holeman to the rock 'n' roll update of the Dex Romweber Duo, from the a square dance featuring the Five Points Rounders to sets by young updaters of tradition such as Mipso, the Morning Brigade and the charming new Loamlands. The African American Dance Ensemble shares a stage with pop-rock impresario Chris Stamey, while Saturday mixes the laser-etched narratives of the Mountain Goats and the bar-side heartbreak of country master John Howie Jr.—Grayson Currin
