Band Entertains Thousands at Wayne Henderson Music Festival

Terry and the Dukes were among the featured bands at the recent Wayne Henderson Music Festival at Grayson Highlands State Park in Virginia.

Freelance writer, Teresa Gereaux gave this account:

The Wayne Henderson Festival in Grayson County, Virginia featured a brilliant, blue sky and a full day of bluegrass, old time and Cajun music. The festival featured Lonesome River Band, Michael and David Doucet of BeauSoleil, Terry Baucom & the Dukes of Drive, and the Yates Family Band. Songwriters Jane Kramer and Dori Freeman kicked off the program with a set of their works.

Between Lonesome River Band and Terry Baucom & the Dukes of Drive, it was a banjo lover’s dream. Lonesome River Band’s set featured several songs from the new Mountain Home Music release, Bridging the Tradition, including Rose in Paradise and Real People. Lonesome River is fronted by Sammy Shelor, who was right at home on Virginia’s Crooked Road, vocalist and songwriter Brandon Rickman, Mike Hartgrove, Barry Reed and Randy Jones.

Terry Baucom and the Dukes of Drive are a tight quartet. The quartet of Baucom, Will Jones, Joey Lemons and Joe Hannabach rolled out some fantastic bluegrass. Their set featured popular tunes from Baucom’s catalog, such as The Rock.
