Grandview Mountain Pickers
The Grandview Mountain Pickers are the five person bluegrass band that is young, entertaining and good. The Grandview Mountain Pickers began touring in November 2016 and in 2017 the group played to 50 events. Mother and manager Jackie Grant has already acknowledged around 70 events for 2018 planned.
The kids have been singing and playing music since since they were big enough to talk in church just not bluegrass style. The banjo player really got a love for her banjo about two years ago and really has blossomed with her playing. Through her love and desire the other siblings have joined in with the same passion and desire. Their vocals and musical abilities are growing daily. They have a dedication, desire and drive to be the best.
Knox Area Dulcimer Club
The Knox Area Dulcimer Club will be performing on the TNMLF stage prior to 11:30 am and then throughout the day at their festival location.
Several local folks play dulcimers with the KADC and perform at festivals and events throughout East Tennessee.
Their mission is to share the music and teach others the ease of playing the
dulcimer without having to know music. They promote musical interest in the Mountain and Hammered Dulcimers as well as other acoustical instruments.
They meet the fourth Sunday of each month at the Second United Methodist Church, Knoxville and membership is open to anyone who would like to attend and participate.
