GRAHAM, N.C. -- Music is sacred, especially to this Graham man and his father.

Dewey Brown Jr. and his son Dewey Brown III are Bluegrass musicians. Brown III runs a music shop on South Main Street in Graham that sells instruments and gives lessons.

Brown III, who is a fiddler by trade, plays about every Bluegrass instrument imaginable - branching out as far as the shofar.

In addition to owning his own successful business, he toured with Bluegrass legend, Ralph Stanley, who died early this year. Now, Dewey plays with Ralph’s grandson.

To celebrate the music, there will be a Bluegrass festival this weekend called Deweyfest. The festival takes place Friday and Saturday at 6701 Highway 49 in Burlington.
