The party is getting started…. The 64th annual Azalea Festival will be held April 6- 10, 2011 in Wilmington NC. Darius Rucker has been announced as the the headliner for the concert on April 6 at Trask Coliseum to open up the festivities. Rucker was previously with Hootie and the Blowfish, before he set out on his own. Deep voiced country music is what you will enjoy at the concert. The other celebrities are Wilmington’s own Tampa Bay Buccaneers place kicker and John T. Hoggard High School graduate Connor Barth; Miss North Carolina 2010 Adrienne Leigh Core; Emmy Award-winning actress and soap opera star Leann Hunley, who played the cougar-ish Tamara Jacobs on filmed-in-Wilmington TV series “Dawson’s Creek”; USS Gravely Commander Douglas Kunzman, making his second festival appearance; and Chris Lambton, who appeared on the ABC reality show “The Bachelorette.” The Avett Brothers are headlining a concert on April 8, and that show is sold out.
