This fall we are bringing a renowned bluegrass band, regional breweries and famous Eastern North Carolina barbecue together for BBQ, Bluegrass & Brew.

Hank, Pattie and the Current will take the stage in the Cotton Barn of Brock’s Farm and perform their signature form of bluegrass music that is a beautiful and noticeably southern, mixing traditional bluegrass, Americana, blues, jazz and classical sounds. Donating their time and expertise, Hank, Patti and the Current will perform those sweet Appalachian sounds with a unique and energetic twist.

Two regional breweries are showing their support with incredible beer donations. Duck Rabbit Craft Brewery and Tarboro Brewing Company will offer up a variety of brews – from Duck Rabbit’s award-winning Milk Stout and Amber Ale to Tarboro Brewing Company’s popular Belgium-style pale ale, Nana’s Roof.

The barbecue will be coming from Bill’s Barbecue and Chicken, located in Wilson, N.C. Bill’s has been a barbecue favorite since 1963. So what’s on the menu? Bill’s signature barbecue, slaw, green beans, potatoes, hush puppies and sweet tea.

All the funds raised from BBQ, Bluegrass & Brew will go to ENC Stop Human Trafficking Now’s education and preventative programs.
