Gather 'round, folks! It's time to celebrate the flavors of the South, the twang of bluegrass, and the joy of giving back. BBQ for Books with a Side of Bluegrass is back, and we're inviting you to join us for an evening of good food, great music, and even better company.

Mark your calendars for Friday, October 4, 2024, and head on down to Nana Mac Meadows, nestled at the foot of Pilot Mountain in Pinnacle, NC. Doors open at 5:00 p.m., so come early to snag a good spot and soak in the atmosphere.

From 6:00 to 8:00 p.m., indulge in mouthwatering barbecue cooked up by the talented Dennis Ruff. Wash it down with your beverage of choice from our beer and wine bar, open until 8:00 p.m. Your ticket includes the meal and entertainment, excluding alcohol, so you can focus on enjoying the evening.

Peruse our live auction, filled with exciting finds, and don't forget to check out our silent auction for more treasures. Plus, there will be games and activities to keep the fun going all night long.

Best of all, your support goes directly to early literacy and other early childhood programs in Stokes County, benefiting 2,500 young minds. From Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library to Reach Out and Read, your donation helps make a difference in our community. Thanks to past BBQ for Books events, we've made strides like installing a Book Walk exhibit at King Central Park and setting up a Little Free Library in our office parking lot. With your help, we can continue to expand these initiatives and spread the love of reading.

So, come on out and join us for an evening of food, music, and giving back. BBQ for Books with a Side of Bluegrass is the place to be on October 4th—see you there!

About the Music

Mountain Home Recording Artist Unspoken Tradition is about new, original bluegrass. Inspired by their own influences and the roots of traditional and newgrass music, this North Carolina based quintet brings a sound that is both impassioned and nostalgic, hard-driving and sincere. Recent  singles have  charted in the Bluegrass Today top 5 including three songs to hit the #1 spot   “California”, “Darkside Of The Mountain” , and in January of 2024,  “Weed’s Don’t Wither”


Their material is mostly original and reflects the ever-changing culture of Western and Central North Carolina where they call home. The band has earned a fervent following in the Southeast, selling out shows in Asheville, NC as well as the legendary Station Inn in Nashville, TN. They have also performed twice on the coveted Watson (main stage) at MerleFest. With heavy

airplay on Sirius XM’s Bluegrass Junction and ever-growing streaming numbers, Unspoken Tradition is a fast-rising voice of a new generation of roots music artists.


"Without straying from their Carolina bluegrass roots, the vocal, lyrical, and instrumental variety ... is bound to appeal to fans of folk, Americana, and traditional country music."  No Depression


Represented by Advance Artist Support, Unspoken Tradition plays nationwide. Find show dates, videos and more info about the band at
