A stellar lineup of the very best in Country, Bluegrass and Gospel Music, the bill includes the Grammy-award winning act Jerry Douglas Presents the Earls of Leicester, The Del McCoury Band, Sierra Hull, Primitive Quartet, as well as current and former members of the legendary Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver, of which Dailey was a member prior to forming the duet with Darrin Vincent.
“We are so very thrilled to be bringing music fans some of the greatest music in the world, in one of the most beautiful places in the world!,” says Jamie Dailey.
Hilda Thomason, General Manager of the Georgia Mountain Fairgrounds, is eagerly anticipating hosting the event. “We are very excited about bringing the Dailey & Vincent LandFest In The Mountains to the Georgia Mountain Fairgrounds!
