“Culture is the closest to my heart,” says Fleming, who plays steel guitar, of activities at the second biennial Get Off the Grid Fest . “The best way to build the culture of a community is through music and dance, and we have an incredibly strong line-up. It’s an empowering and joyful event.”
From October: Dr. Dog, Trampled By Turtles, Drive-by Truckers, Rayland Baxter, Grace Potter, LEAF Festival, Colonel Bruce, Unspoken Tradition, Widespread Panic and more.
Some highlights from this season’s festival, including LEAF Schools & Streets performances and Spirit of NOLA acts.
Charleston-based roots-rockers Sol Driven Train will perform two sets at LEAF, including one with LEAF Schools & Streets students.

The three-day festival, which runs Friday-Sunday, May 22-24, is named for the town’s signature bushy-tailed critters. It fills downtown Brevard with food vendors, crafts booths, a Memorial Day parade and wreath presentation, kids activities and a street-wide stage for lots of live music.
