Soak Up Three Days of Music Asheville Barnaroo 2017!

September 4th, 2017 by Corey A. Edwards

Asheville Barnaroo 2017The 9th annual Asheville Barnaroo is just around the corner: 3 days of non-stop live music scheduled for September 29th through October 1st, 2017 at Franny’s Farm in Leicester, NC.

If you did a double take when you saw “Barnaroo” that’s because the Asheville Barnaroo is a direct response to the annual Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival. The Barnaroo was started by a group of friends who were miffed that they couldn’t get into Bonnaroo because they were underage. Like Buddha and the mountain, when they couldn’t go to the music festival, they decided to bring the music festival to them. And so much the luckier for the rest of us!

The 9 year-old event has been held at Franny’s Farm in Leicester, NC since 2012. Franny’s Farm is an organic, sustainable farm, located just 10 miles from downtown Asheville. The beautiful site’s 33 acres make the perfect venue for an event of this size.

Asheville Barnaroo showcases local and regional rock, hard rock, folk, Americana, bluegrass, and funk bands over three days. The event also features student bands from Asheville Music School (AMS). In fact, Barnaroo’s goal is to give back to the youth music community through Asheville Music School. The festival includes a silent auction to benefit AMS and also donate a portion of the festival proceeds to the school.

Beyond all the great music, Barnaroo also includes local food and drink from Hi-Wire Brewing and the Farm to Fender food truck. There will also be lots of talented regional artisans on hand selling all manner of one-of-a-kind, handmade arts and crafts.
