The Bluegrass, Barbecue & Brew Festival is a way for the Patrick Henry Memorial Foundation to raise awareness about Patrick Henry, Virginia’s first elected governor and America’s Patriot. The festival is held on the grounds of Patrick Henry’s last home and burial site, Red Hill. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization devoted to education and preservation. The festival allows us to educate the public about Patrick Henry and 18th century life.
Music was THE entertainment for the 18th century family. Patrick Henry played the flute and the fiddle, both of which are here in the museum at Red Hill. His wife Dorothea played the English guitar. The fiddle and violin are really the same instrument, however when it is used to play folk music it is considered a fiddle. Henry and his family enjoyed folk music.
