TRAVELERS REST, S.C. – The Grassabillies, a high-energy trio based out of western North Carolina, will headline this weeks Harvest Market and Bluegrass Festival at Trailblazer Park in Travelers Rest. The event, which runs from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Thurs., Oct. 19, features live music at the amphitheatre and Travelers Rest Farmers Market vendors at the covered pavilion.
The band — Robbie Helton on bass and vocals, Luke Edwards on guitar and lead vocals, and Randy Saxon on banjo, mandolin and vocals — is sure to be a crowd-pleaser with their "no rules" take on their blend of bluegrass, country, and roots rock n' roll.
