Common Thread

So, what do Carolina Chocolate Drops, Train, Fantasia and the Avett Brothers all have in common? Yes, many of you would say the 53rd annual Grammy Awards this past weekend....while true, that is not the only common thread among these musicians.

What ties them to each other for Greensboro is the Fun Fourth Festival!  Yep, that's right!

Train -- 2010 Grammy Winner, Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals. Performed at the 1999 Fun Fourth Festival -- Saturday, July  3 @ 5pm. Maybe you were there --  in the Depot parking lot enjoying their music?

Fantasia -- 2010 Grammy Winner, Best Female R & B Vocal Performance. Performed at the 2003 Fun Fourth on the 97.1 Stage with the band Infinity -- Maybe you were there -- on Washington Street enjoying her vocals?

Avett Brothers -- 2011 Grammy Performer -- also a 2003 Fun Fourth Performer on the Backporch of Blandwood!  Maybe you were there -- sitting on the back lawn of Blandwood Mansion enjoying their tunes?

Carolina Chocolate Drops -- 2010 Grammy Winner for Best Traditional Folk Album. In 2008 they performed at the Fun Fourth Festival Heritage Day @ Blandwood.  Maybe you were there, sitting on the front lawn, under the shady trees listening to the Carolina Chocolate Drops?

Which 2011 Fun Fourth Festival band will be the next Grammy winner and where will you be when they are performing at the Fun Fourth Festival?
