Art of Sound began as a local festival, and by word of mouth has grown into a respected regional event. AOS now attracts headliner acts from the national scene. In spite of being bigger and better, it retains its home town charm. The festival is in uptown Shelby, the home of Earl Scruggs and Don Gibson. It is held on the historic court square and nestled in several venues that afford the listener an up-close experience with the artists. The venues are tucked away at a variety of indoor stages around the square.
