After its debut outing last year, Earl Scruggs Music Festival is back this September boasting a 2023 lineup headlined by Emmylou Harris, Greensky Bluegrass, The Infamous Stringdusters and Del McCoury Band. The three-day event will once again take place at Tryon International Equestrian Center in Mill Spring, North Carolina September 1 – 3.

The musical festival takes its name from and honors the life and legacy of Earl Scruggs, who helped bring bluegrass to the masses over the course of his career.
