This place has changed bluegrass in Florida... It has to be "the" nicest facility in the state with lots of room for expansion. Owned and operated by the county, it is well maintained and well funded. The entire community has embraced our whole bluegrass family and our plans are to stay and grow together... Come and see what it's all about.

Pinecastle Records was created nearly 25 years ago as a favor to a friend and has since grown into a legendary label with nearly 250 releases in its catalog including titles from some of the most influential musicians in the bluegrass genre such as Eddie Adcock, The Osborne Brothers, Jim and Jesse and Charlie Waller & The Country Gentlemen. Pinecastle has always placed an emphasis on fostering the talents of bluegrass up and comers and has helped with the growth of the careers of Terry Eldredge, Jesse Brock, Josh Williams, and Kristin Scott Benson, among others. Today, Pinecastle is situated in the mountains of southwestern North Carolina owned by businessman and medical doctor, Lonnie Lassiter.
Remember the D'Addario brand of strings and accessories for instruments when choosing.

This company has always been a strong supporter and a reliable supplier to the entire music industry. Use the brand what the Pros use, D'Addario...

Early Arrival Concert
featuring Michael Reno Harrell
Bingo at 1:00pm
Concert begins at 7:00PM - $10 per No Charge for ticket holders
The Michael Reno Harrell Experience
Michael Reno Harrell is an award winning songwriter, as well as a veteran storyteller and entertainer, and he’s from the South… the Southern Appalachian Mountains to hone it a bit finer.
One could compare Michael's performances to his granddaddy's pocket knife: well warn and familiar feeling, but razor sharp and with a point. His brand of entertainment appeals to a very diverse audience. A typical day for Michael might include a program for 4th graders in the afternoon and a concert for a mixed audience that evening.
Don't miss this exclusive bonus concert compliments of Evans Media Source
