Country star Travis Tritt, classic-rockers Foghat, country-rockers Poco and Southern-rockers The Outlaws will be among the musical attractions of the ninth annual Rock, Ribs & Ridges festival, taking place June 23-24 at the Sussex County Fairgrounds in Augusta.
The event combines a rib competition, craft beers on tap and camping with two full days of music.
June 23 performers will include Foghat, The Outlaws, The Artimus Pyle Band, Hannah Wicklund & The Steppin’ Stones, and The Matt Coffy Band.
The lineup on June 24 will be: Travis Tritt, The Weight Band, Poco and The Farmer Phil Band.
Foghat is led by co-founder Roger Earl, and Poco is led by co-founder Rusty Young.
Pyle played drums for Lynyrd Skynyrd at various times in the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s.
The Weight Band features Jim Weider of The Band and other musicians associated with that group. The group plays the music of The Band, though they are also releasing, this week, their first album of mostly original material, World Gone Mad.
