Belmont's Between 2 Rivers 2 set for October

The second annual Between 2 Rivers Music Festival will take place October 13 in Belmont. The benefit concert will feature Carolina country and roots music acts the Josh Fosdick Band, Baylor Drive, Walt Wilkins & the Mystiqueros, Mt. Woodland Band, and Greenville, SC's Piedmont Boys (pictured above) as well as Texas' (by way of Oklahoma) No Justice.

Last year's inaugural festival exceeded expectations with over 1,500 attendees and over $7,000 raised. This year proceeds will go to the Wounded Warrior Project and Gaston Hospice.

The concert, which is spread across two stages, takes place at downtown Belmont's String Bean Market. Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the gate. Music begins at 2 p.m. and runs until 10 p.m. More details are available at
