Aaron Burdett, Scoot Pittman to perform at Tryon Beer Fest

Published 3:19 pm Tuesday, October 24, 2017

It’s a six-pack anniversary at Tryon Beer Fest, presented by New View Realty, to be held Nov. 4. After five years of Oktoberfest-style Oompah bands, this year’s beer fest will be all about local rock with two regional bands.

Opening the festival will be the Aaron Burdett band. Aaron 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.

Headlining will be Scoot Pittman, a popular musician from Charlotte, N.C. You may have enjoyed Scoot at Summer Tracks or other local venues. It takes a professional to seamlessly blend booty shakin’ rhythm with lasting, meaningful lyrics, but that is exactly what Scoot 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.
