“This Festival was created to celebrate the old-time tradition of friends and neighbors gathering on the front porch of their homes or the old country store to play music and just ‘shoot the breeze,’ explains Hayes, a self-described history buff. “Life was more simple then, slow-paced. There were no cell phones, there was no Internet. This was how folks would talk about the news, local happenings and just catch up on what was going on in each other’s lives. It’s an honor and a privilege to be a part of bringing this bit of history to life,” says the Midland, NC resident.

Mitch Hayes has just released a new album, Heroes. “Each song on the album has a compelling back-story,” reveals Hayes. ‘The Hardest Thing’ is about the oft-told them of love and loss. Love is such a wonderful thing and yet sometimes it seems to be completely unattainable. ‘All Fall Down’ deals with the civil unrest our country, and in particular, my city, is going through at present.

“Originally the title of the album was going to be called Home Again with (current album title) Heroes as the title track, recalls Hayes. “One day, can’t recall exactly when, I began to muse on the lyrics of the songs. Several of them deal with personal heroes I have had in my life. In fact, the fabric of this record is permeated with them – with thoughts of, and appreciation for those men and women both alive and deceased whose words have inspired me throughout my life to reach for the stars, to strive to be the best me I can be.

“It just made sense that Heroes should be the title of this CD.”
