Josh Leo, Kim Carnes, the Adam Craig Band, Tim Nichols, and Mark Rapp are some of the musical talent that will accompany these dinners as well the culinary seminars on Saturday afternoon offered by Lionel Vatinet, Anthony Lamas, and James Boyce who will demonstrate their expertise of the craft.

The Sunday is also filled with events and starts with a jazz brunch, followed by a culinary cook-off, and a bartender mix-off competition. The finale is the Sunday supper with a family-style meal prepared by some of the top chefs in the southeast with bluegrass music softly playing in the background.
