Big Daddy Love, May 17
Big Daddy Love’s multiple performances at 2011’s Floyd Festival made it clear that this is likely the most important new band to watch in the East Coast roots rock and Americana community. Having only been together since the Summer of 2009, Big Daddy Love– founded by high school friends from the rural hill country of Sparta, NC– was just playing a handful of North Carolina markets when they made their first trip to Floyd in 2010, where they won the prestigious “Under The Radar” contest for the best new artist at the large, Virginia festival.
