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. From his untimely death, HoustonFest was born.
Numerous talented performers have stepped up to show their love and support of Houston and his family by contributing time and talent during HoustonFest. There definitely will be no shortage of incredible bluegrass and oldtime mountain music at Felts Park in Galax!
Marty Stuart and Steep Canyon Rangers will be performing at HoustonFest! Also Headlining: Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver,
Blue Highway, Sierra Hull, the Church Sisters and many more.
We have 45 bands playing at HoustonFest! Now that’s a lot of music to the ears! Artists in Galax and surrounding communities are often referred to as a “family” of musicians, and they are always ready and willing to gather in support when one of their own is in need.
