Rockhill South Carolina Music
Welcome back to the Butts Bluegrass & BBQ Festival, formerly known as Rock Hill South Carolina Music & Arts Festival (RHSF). The ten-day festival takes place on the banks of the river, full of frogs, music and fun. If you've been going to Rock Hills for 15 years, you know it's coming back every year for a new year.
Stroll through the streets filled with food trucks, shop at the craft market and enjoy several festivals from all over the county. Enjoy live music, food, art, crafts, vendors and more from across the state of South Carolina.
Not only will your participation support the Rock Hill music scene, you will also forget to experience a unique music venue in South Carolina that is evolving into something bigger. Check out the Main Street Shamrock Jam with a variety of live music, food trucks, craft vendors and more. As if that wasn't enough, the party continues on Saturday with the annual concert of the Rock Hills Symphony Orchestra. The orchestra will give two major concerts this year, and not only that: those present will support the RockHill music scene.
The Bel Canto Concert Choir is composed of 7th and 8th grade students, although it is an advanced performance group. The student group has earned high ratings and regularly travels to concerts in New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago and other major cities in the United States.
Rock Hill is one of the most popular music venues in the state of South Carolina, and there are people who live in Rock Hill and reliably attend just about every show. New bands are always booked, but there is a steady stream of local bands and bands from all over the country and even from all over the world who behave at local music festivals, concerts and other events.
Rock Hill's creative community goes deeper into the history of the local art collective W.A.M. A., which also stands for art creation. As the name suggests, the project is about Rock Hill musicians writing their name on an instrument they play. The newly formed band has two months to produce 10-15 minutes of music, and then the names are randomly selected from a hat and put together into a random band.
Dutchman Creek High School's band program consists of students from Rock Hill, South Carolina and other parts of the state. The bands in the programme have earned the honour of being the best in their field, due to their performance at the annual Bluegrass Music Festival. Dutchman Creek Band students have also been ranked among the "best in the state" in the past two years, according to the American Federation of State High Schools Association.

We were lucky enough to attend Dumb Sweater Fest, which featured a variety of local artists, music, food, drinks and more. F took place over two evenings and featured 12 different rock hill bands playing each other, as well as a local artists market set up in the lobby.
The last two singles did not make it into the Top 40 of the country charts, but both reached the country singles & tracks charts. The lead single served as the lead track on his debut album "Ride with Private Malone" on the Dualtone label, which landed at number one on both the Billboard Hot Country Songs and the Country Albums. However, only one of his other two singles, the follow-up single "Follow me home" ("Do you want to love me"), reached # 2 on the US Billboard Top 100 and # 3 in South Carolina.
It reminds me of a time when country songs were skilfully written, performed with heart and purpose and made for people who didn't have much money or titles in the world. There's nothing you can't bring back to Porter's Store for a good old country song.
They moved to Nashville, where they made a living and formed a trio, the Uncle Walt Band. They were a hit in Austin, where the music scene was more progressive and hungry young players like Lyle Lovett would unpack the group's dancehall shows. When Mike's boyfriend Nathan Matthews moved to Greenville in 2013-2014, they developed their own version of the "Uncle Walt" band.
It's clear how instrumental the collective has been to Rock Hill artists and musicians, and it's a testament to how musicians on the scene can drive the kind of sound that's booked anywhere. The scene is cramped - and revolves around the courtroom and the musician who plays there, even though it's the only place in Rock Hill. W. A.M.A. were heavily represented at Dumb Sweater Fest, but there is a tightly knit scene of musicians from across the state, as well as the country.
