Perhaps nothing draws more people or more interest to the Whiskey Rebellion Festival than the musical performances. From the inspiring Symphony kick-off Thursday night to the pulsing Blues and R&B Friday to non-stop Americana/Heritage music to Saturday’s nationally recognized headliner, the festival’s music scene is eclectic and exhilarating.

The Whiskey Rebellion Festival has hosted some of the biggest names in the music business.

The Travelin’ McCourys
8:30pm - New Community Pavilion

The Travelin’ McCourys do not stand still. They are on the road—and online—entertaining audiences with live shows that include some of the best musicians and singers from all genres. It’s always different, always exciting, and always great music.

No other band today has the same credentials for playing traditional and progressive music. As the sons of bluegrass legend Del McCoury, Ronnie McCoury on mandolin and Rob McCoury on banjo continue their father’s work—a lifelong dedication to the power of bluegrass music to bring joy into people’s lives. And with fiddler Jason Carter and bassist Alan Bartram, the ensemble is loved and respected by the bluegrass faithful. But the band is now combining their sound with others to make something fresh and rejuvenating.

The Jakob's Ferry Stragglers
7:00pm - New Community Pavilion

The Jakob’s Ferry Stragglers draw freely from old-time, bluegrass, country, jazz, rockabilly and swing styles to create their tight, high-energy string band music.
Well-crafted original songs with emotional depth, masterful picking, and resonant vocal harmonies combine to forge new territories and a fresh take on Appalachian Americana music. Band members Gary Antol (guitar, vocals), Libby Eddy (fiddle, vocals), Joe Dep (banjo) and Ed Croft (bass, vocals) hail from the mountains and river towns of southwestern Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Ohio.
