CREEDMOOR — The 28th annual Creedmoor Music Festival drew a big crowd last Saturday as visitors enjoyed food, fun and live music.

The festival lineup included oldies, bluegrass, blues, country, funk and rock. The festivities took place on two stages (Southern States and Sanderford Street) complemented by over 100 craft and food vendors lining Main Street.

The South Granville High School band opened the proceedings with a performance at 10 a.m., and the full day of music continued on the Southern States stage with the Rhythm Express Band of Rocky Mount followed by the Invaders Band. Tim Cifers later came to the stage and Tyler Kinchen & the Right Pieces closed out the day.

On the Sanderford stage the day opened with local artist Buckshot Betty followed by bluegrass favorites GrassStreet, River Ratz, and Cumberland County Line finished off the festivities.
