2018 IBMA Momentum Band of the Year!


Based out of Wilkesboro, NC, the Trailblazers have taken a step back to the roots of Bluegrass, Americana, Folk, and Jazz music. The band has a solid foundation in the music they love, but they're constantly looking for new ways to make their mark in progressive acoustic music. The Trailblazers make original music and put their own twist on endless classics. They are the 2018 IBMA Momentum Band of the Year, and have won many prestigious contests, including Merlefest (2017), and the SPBGMA International Band Contest (2018).

The Trailblazers took the Main Stage at Merlefest with their 2017 Merlefest Band Contest win.

2018 International SPBGMA Band Contest Winners!

They have opened for acclaimed acts such as Ricky Skaggs and Kentucky Thunder, Blue Highway, and The Kruger Brothers.
