About the Festival
Reevestock Music Festival, which takes place on Friday, August 2nd, and Saturday, August 3rd, 2019, is a small, family-friendly music festival in a beautiful setting.
This is possibly the most comfortable, relaxed music festival in North Carolina. According to Glide Magazine, “Everything you kind of hate about festivals doesn’t happen here. Reevestock is the way festivals would be in an alternate, better universe.”
The festival is the brainchild of the North Carolina folk/rock band Time Sawyer. It’s a fundraiser to provide college scholarships to students in Elkin, NC, the hometown of three Time Sawyer band members.
The festival features nine bands (three on Friday night and six at the main event on Saturday), food trucks, wine, craft beer and more.
Note: Last year, Friday night sold out, and they are getting scarce for this year, so purchase your 2-day bundle soon (details below.)

Day 1–Friday, August 2nd
Day 1, on Friday, August 2nd, 2019 takes place in Downtown Elkin.
- 5 p.m.: Block party with an acoustic performance Swim in the Wild (free)
- 8 p.m.: Brent Cobb & Them at Reeves Theater, 129 West Main Street, Elkin. (Tickets $20-$35)
- 10 p.m.: Late Night Hoot at Angry Troll Brewing with Akita, a 6-piece funk band from Charlotte (free)
Brent Cobb — With a Grammy-nominated album under his belt, Brent Cobb spent most of 2017 on the road, touring behind his major label debut, Shine On Rainy Day. It was a hard time to not be inspired. Anchored by southern storytelling and swampy, country-soul swagger, Shine On Rainy Day had become a critical and commercial hit, earning Cobb a long string of shows with artists like Chris Stapleton and Margo Price. He embraced the road-warrior lifestyle, picking up ideas for new songs every time his band hit the highway.
Day 2–Saturday, August 3rd
Saturday, August 3rd, 2019 is the main event. Gates open at 1 p.m. and the festival goes until 10 p.m. Reevestock offers the public a rare chance to visit and explore Elkin’s Hidden Amphitheater, a privately owned entertainment venue in a wooded, park-like setting with rolling hills, a running stream, waterfalls, hammock chairs and swings. This is an extremely family-friendly festival.
The main event on Saturday features:
Mipso — Chapel Hill’s indie Americana quartet Mipso – Jacob Sharp (mandolin, vocals), Wood Robinson (bass, vocals), Joseph Terrell (guitar, vocals), and Libby Rodenbough (fiddle, vocals) – released their fifth album, Edges Run, in April of 2018 with AntiFragile Music.
Time Sawyer — Time Sawyer is interested in “real people and real songs” and that’s just what the listener finds in their music – a sense of realness. Time Sawyer blends a grassroots feel with heart-felt lyrics to put on an entertaining show.
Songs From the Road Band — Songs From The Road Band is a North Carolina based quartet featuring Mark Schimick, Charles Humphrey, Sam Wharton, and James Schlender. Collectively, they have received top accolades in the bluegrass, Americana, and jazz genres.
Nicholas Jamerson – With his dreamy acoustic picking and a voice that runs molasses-thick, old-soul Nicholas Jamerson writes earnest songs that are filled with heart. His songs spin tales of southern gothic drama woven with an intricate emotional framework, underscored with delicate Americana instrumentation and country-folk melodies.
Isaac Smith – Isaac Smith is hard to pin down as an artist. Steeped in Southern culture, trained in classical music, and raised in the pews of his father’s church, he blends all of these elements into his live performances. Expect to hear soulful re-imaginings, roots rock and pop…and you may even catch a hymn from his youth.
Shay Martin Lovette — Shay Martin Lovette is a singer-songwriter from the foothills of Appalachia in North Carolina. He has placed in nationally recognized songwriting competitions like Merlefest’s Chris Austin Songwriting Competition and Telluride’s Troubadour Songwriting Competition. He has performed at music festivals such as Merlefest, Bristol Rhythm and Roots Reunion, and Carolina in the Fall.
