HUNTERSVILLE – Organizers promised an expanded Barnstock music festival this year, and in the end they came through. This weekend’s two-day showcase of local music at the Brown family barn off Black Farms Road in Huntersville attracted nearly 1,200 fans and raised $10,000 for local charities.
This festival, which included a headline performance Friday by nationally-known rockers Donna the Buffalo, raised money for Davidson’s volunteer fire department, Second Harvest Food Bank, American Red Cross, Cannon School in Concord and W.A. Hough High School in Cornelius. The charities will share the $10,000 equally. Read the full story

The third annual Barnstock music festival – two nights of live local bands on the Brown family farm off N.C. 73 – raised $6,500 for Davidson Volunteer Fire Department over the weekend.
The event attracted 169 people Friday night for an “Old Folks Barnstock” with several local bands and an older crowd. Another 684 music lovers showed up Saturday for the main Barnstock event, a 15-and-over show that featured five different local bands. Read the full story

More than 550 people attended last year's Barnstock, at the Brown farm. Organizer Miles Brown thinks there could be 750 this year.
Wow, what a weekend we have ahead for local music, from two nights of music at Barnstock on the Brown farm in Huntersville to outdoor concerts Saturday in Cornelius and Sunday in Davidson. And there’s a lot more in between.
It’s the third year for Barnstock, so named because it’s in and out of the Brown family’s barn on Black Farms Road, off N.C. 73 in Huntersville. This year, Barnstock is expanding to two nights: Beside Saturday’s lineup of five bands of teens and 20-somethings, they’ve added a Friday night concert they’re calling “Old Folks Barnstock” – for the over-21 crowd.
