Aaron Burdett is listed as one of the top 10 most important musicians of western North Carolina by WNC Magazine, alongside such greats as Doc Watson, Steep Canyon Rangers, and The Avett Brothers. He has also received critical acclaim as a songwriter, winning Our State Magazine’s Carolina Songs competition in 2012 with “Going Home to Carolina.” Aaron’s song “Magpie” won third place bluegrass song in the prestigious Chris Austin Songwriting Contest at Merlefest in 2013.

It takes a professional to seamlessly blend booty shakin’ rhythm with lasting, meaningful lyrics, but that is exactly what Scoot Pittman is and it is exactly what he has done. Like mama’s Southern cookin’ sticks to your gut, Scoot’s music will satisfy that sweet spot in your brain and keep a smile on your face. Very real, very fun, and very entertaining – this music and this life makes sense.

The Tryon Beer Fest combines small town charm with entertainment and quality you’d expect in a big city. The festival prides itself on short lines, and tickets are capped at 1,000 to preserve the small town feel. An annual festival tradition includes an outdoor oyster roast, photo booth, games and a great selection of local, regional and unique craft beers, cider and food, all while enjoying the scenic views of historic, Downtown Tryon and the first rise of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

This is a 21+ event and no dogs are allowed in the festival boundaries. This event is produced by the Tryon Downtown Development Association, and funds raised will benefit downtown improvement projects. For more information, please visit
