10:00 AM - 11:30 AM: Wyatt Espalin

With the Ocoee River in East Tennessee as the backdrop, and North Georgia on the horizon, Wyatt Espalin's debut album, The Pardon (April, 2013), was born. Entertaining audiences in his hometown of Hiawassee, Georgia as early as age eleven, Wyatt's passion for music was obvious, even from the barn room stage built by his grandfather. He and his brother Matt were known as "The Fiddling Brothers." While Matt hung up his fiddle and bow after high school, Wyatt was just getting started. Armed with a guitar and a desire to write songs, he paired with Cobi Ferguson to form the acclaimed Americana duo, Trees Leave. Combining electric guitar with traditional bluegrass roots led to a noticeably unique sound and a growing fan base.
