We're happy to announce that local guy Justin Trawick (and his band) will perform again at the fest.
These days, Justin Trawick and The Common Good (www.justintrawick.com) is based in DC and tours around the Mid Atlantic. But Loudoun is home to Justin, who grew up in Leesburg and played with his church's acoustic folk group and the Loudoun Bluegrass Association before moving away for college.
We asked Justin what it means to him to return and perform at our A.T. celebration. Here's what he had to say:
I'm an Eagle Scout and grew up in Leesburg hiking and camping with my Boy Scout Troop, Troop 982. I really loved Boy Scouts and outdoor activities, which is partly why I like being a part of A.T. Fest.
In the digital, fast-paced world we live now it's important not to forget the natural world around us. The long tradition of the Appalachian Trail and what it means to the communities it passes through up and down the East Coast is something to be celebrated. It would be easy for people one day to forget about these important nature preserves, but the A.T. Fest is doing its part in keeping it in the forefront of people's minds.
Welcome back to our celebration of the A.T. (and all the Great Outdoors), Justin.
