Greg Brewer (JD ’84) brings bluegrass to Mocksville, N.C., through fifth annual Carolina Bible Camp Bluegrass Festival

To say that Greg Brewer  (JD ’84) is a bluegrass fan is a bit of an understatement. A native of Wilkes County, North Carolina, he and his family have been going to MerleFest, an annual ode to bluegrass and all other types of roots Americana music held there, since its inception in the 1988. In fact, the cabin that is home to the famous Cabin Stage next to the main Watson Stage, was donated by Brewer’s family. That stage has launched musical acts from Gillian Welch to Mipso‘s Joseph Terrell, both of whom were winners of the festival’s Chris Austin Song Writing competition.

So it should come as no surprise that Brewer, along with his wife, Lisa De Maio Brewer (BA ’81, MA ’08), are the steam behind the musical engine that pulls the annual Carolina Bible Camp (CBC) Bluegrass Festival together each year. “The CBC Bluegrass Festival has two goals: The first is to raise funds for the CBC and the second is to raise awareness of the CBC,” Lisa Brewer explained, adding more than 1,000 people attended this year’s festival held on Saturday, Sept. 10, at the campground located just outside Mocksville, North Carolina.

Sarah Turner (LLM ’15) of Norwich, United Kingdom, knew when deciding on an LL.M. program that she wanted a unique experience in a supportive environment.

Turner is happy she took that advice. “After spending a year at Wake Forest, I consider my initial application to be one of the best decisions I have ever made,” she said.
