A new music festival is coming to Mayo Island.
According to Richmond BizSense, locally-based Blue Marble Productions is revitalizing the island with a series of music festivals. The first concert – the country themed Country on Mayo – takes place Oct. 19.
The lineup is still being finalized, but Country on Mayo will feature Brett Eldredge, whose debut album dropped earlier this month, as headliner along with possibly Angie Johnson, Old Dominion and country singer/professional wrestler Mickie James.
It’s been about 10 years since an event was held on the island, so I’m happy to see that the space is being cleaned up and used.
