Moonshiners Reunion and Mountain Music Festival

The Upcountry

The Upcountry

Dedicated to keeping the moonshining spirit alive, the Moonshiner's Reunion and Mountain Music Festival is one of the Appalachian region's most authentic annual folk celebrations. This event is the inspiration of musician Barney Barnwell, whose career path was as winding and steeped in local color as the Moonshiner’s trail leading to the copper pot corn whisky still. Listening to tales of the Moonshiners of the 30’s and 40’s, many of them relatives, Barney saluted these outlaws of yesteryear by writing and performing songs about their ways, myths, and unique contributions. Plum Hollow Farm (also known as Woodstick), which lies near South Carolina’s “Dark Corners”, one of America’s moonshining hot spots, provides a unique and beautiful setting for the festival.
