Gospel, Grits, & Gravy

May 5 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am



A down-home southern breakfast featuring live music, biscuits, grits, various artisanal meats, and flights of gravy! All proceeds benefit local food pantries, Casting Bread Food Pantry and Blowing Rock C.A.R.E.S


The Gospel, Grits, and Gravy event on Sunday became an immediate favorite at its debut last year, and will return for the 2019 festival.  This year, Glenn Bolick and Family will be the featured musical guest. Glenn and Lula Bolick were 2018 recipients of the NC Heritage Award; they continue the Seagrove pottery heritage of Lula’s family, and Glenn is a well-known traditional saw-miller, musician, and storyteller. Glenn’s early musical influence came from hearing his grandparents and aunt sing unaccompanied shape-note gospel hymns in three-part harmony. He is known to enlighten while he entertains, playing the banjo in an old style he learned from his grandmother.
The event will also welcome New Covenant, who will bring a blend of Southern gospel, contemporary Christian, and worship music. They are also known to take their audience through a nostalgic journey of 50’s and 60’s music from time to time. New Covenant is comprised of Larry Johnson, Sherry Gammon, Joanna King, Jeremy Gamble, and Angela Millenbaugh. Each member has the versatility of singing various vocal parts, and together they bring a casual yet spirited performance. The group is an established performer at Grandfather Mountain’s Singing on the Mountain.

Timberlake’s Restaurant will provide a delectable selection of southern breakfast favorites and flights of gravy at this event. With five different kinds of biscuits, five gravies, and four styles of grits, the menu lives up to the title. Plus, enjoy delicious quiche, oatmeal crisp, cherrywood smoked bacon, and more. See the full menu here.

Join us for a southern Sunday full of song and sustenance!
