Ricky Skaggs and Kentucky Thunder is one of three headliners set to perform at ZOOGRASS this fall.

ZOOGRASS at Sunset on Sept. 18-20

ASHEBORO — Asheboro Parks and Recreation Department and booking agent Tim Moon have collaborated to bring ZOOGRASS to Sunset Theatre in downtown Asheboro this fall. 

For three consecutive nights in September, Sunset Theatre will feature some of the best in bluegrass music.

On Wednesday, Sept. 18, Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder take the stage.

On Thursday, Sept. 19, the Lonesome River Band follows.

On Friday, Sept. 20, Sister Sadie wraps up the music series.

The three acts all have ties in the area. Skaggs has family. LRB’s fiddler, Mike Hartgrove, is from Albemarle. Sister Sadie’s banjoist, Gena Britt, is originally from Star. It will be a homecoming of sorts for all.

“It’s going to be great! I am so excited,” Moon said.
