Video: Festival for the Eno presents a steady stream of local talent

Posted by on Tue, Jul 15, 2014 at 4:07 PM

Over the July 4th holiday, The Festival for the Eno presented its 35th installment, benefitting the preservation and conservation of land in and around the Eno River. Unlike many years past, the weather proved to be mild and pleasant both days, with a cool breeze sweeping over the festival grounds.

Four stages provided a solid lineup of music, along with children's activities, numerous vendors and food trucks to keep everyone entertained. Only one musician has performed all 35 years of the festival—the great Piedmont bluesman John Dee Holeman, who played on the River Stage this year to a large and enthusiastic crowd. Below are clips of four of the many local performers who played, including Holeman.

John Dee Holeman, "Baby What You Want Me to Do"

Diali Cissokho and Kaira Ba, "Al Hadji (My Brother, Gone)"


South Carolina Broadcasters, "I Draw the Line"

Dex Romweber Duo, "Mexicali Baby" and "Love Letters"
