Music lovers from near and far flocked to the shores of the Cape Fear River to hear some good old fashioned bluegrass this weekend.

Fans filled the Fort Fisher Military Recreation Area in Kure Beach for the Seventh Annual Southern Coastal Bluegrass Festival. The event featured nine bands from across the state of North Carolina and beyond.

The Thalian Association started the festival in an effort to serve as the group’s primary fundraiser and has had great success bringing bluegrass to the coast.

“It’s an American tradition. And you think of the mountains when you think of bluegrass, but people on the coast are really enjoying it. The crowd here really gets into it, and its fun. Its fun for the children also,” said Vivian Parlier-Burnett from the Thalian Association.

Over the years the event has become a September tradition.
