Event Details

It’s a musical roadshow. It’s a carnival. It’s a 3-ring circus without the high wire and the clowns. It’s a wild west revue with snake oil medicine men in a traveling minstrel show. It’s chicken feathers and hoodoo, frog legs and voodoo. It’s Okefenokee swamp water, Georgia red clay, and soul music on a Saturday night. It’s Uncle Dave’s Waycross Stagecoach and it’s time to ride.

Five acts for the price of one band. It’s a traveling roadshow experience. A set by 4 artists, and then an all-star set at the end. Hosted by Uncle Dave Griffin, founder of the Gram Parsons Guitar Pull and Tribute Festival, and the Swamptown Getdown Music and Arts Festival – both held annually in Waycross.

The four featured acts for the Grant’s Lounge show are Dave Griffin himself, The Pine Box Dwellers, Andy Johnson, and Micah Bonn. Micah is a multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter. Her teen years were spent traveling across the midwest and Appalachia winning various fiddle, mandolin, banjo, and songwriting contests, while also performing at music festivals, sitting in with bands and musical luminaries, and performing solo. With natural exuberance and warmth, she blends traditional plus contemporary styles into her songs, drawing on rich music traditions and techniques she learned firsthand from renowned American fiddlers
