Houston Kyle Caldwell, 18, left this world at a very early age: he suddenly and unexpectedly transitioned to eternal life on April 30, 2010. Even at this early age, this remarkable young man had accomplished more than most. It is because of his many accomplishments that his family and friends decided his memory and legacy must always be kept alive. HoustonFest will benefit the City of Galax and the Galax Fire Department as well as music education programs for youth. At this time, all of the bands signed to play, even the headliners, are contributing time and talent. Everyone involved is volunteering to carry on Houston’s perspective of what country folk in a small mountain town can do for music and for each other.

The Blue Ridge Music Center at Milepost 213 on the Blue Ridge Parkway, was established by the U.S. Congress to celebrate a living musical culture and commemorate the historic roots of American music. The new facility, 12 miles from Galax, includes an outdoor amphitheater, interpretive center, luthier shop, and natural areas. Weekend events are held June through September offering performances and educational exhibits.
