Balsam Range is the lead bluegrass act for the first Apple Country Cider Jam, a hard cider festival expected to draw several hundred tasters to downtown Hendersonville on Saturday, April 22.
The festival, from 1 to 6 p.m., will be a ticketed event with cider tasting, bluegrass and food trucks. Sponsored by AgHC, the nonprofit that promotes farming in Henderson County, the festival is a cooperative effort of the city of Hendersonville and the county Tourism Development Authority. Sixteen local and regional cider producers in North Carolina have been invited to set up tasting booths. Henderson County has three hard cider makers — Bold Rock, Saint Paul Mountain Vineyards and Naked Apple, which operates Flat Rock Ciderworks on Main Street.
