Local musicians to perform at Tryons Fools Fest April 3

Published 3:26 pm Friday, March 26, 2010

The musical portion of Tryons Fools Fest on Saturday, April 3, will feature the live debut of Wishgrove. Also playing will be local Celtic band The Slow Jammers and the Jim Peterman Band. The music starts at 1 p.m., just after the parade.

Wishgrove is a rock band from the mountains of North Carolina. They write, record, and perform their own original music. The result of their chemistry is a wide ranging, high energy three-piece sound. This show actually marks their first anniversary of meeting, and beginning to write music together.

Wishgrove has just completed their first full-length CD I Lost My Head, and the band says they are looking forward to playing their music live in 2010. You can stream their music for free at www.myspace.com/wishgrove or wishgrove.com.
