A mainstay of the Nelsonville Music Festival for years, Chris Biester sits high among the adept songwriting community of Athens County. Equally as comfortable hosting numerous weekly open mics or performing on NPR’s Mountain Stage, a guitar is never far from Biester’s hands, with which he performs ballads, blues and classic Appalachian folk in his raspy voice. If you’re observant, you may find Biester on the sidelines of the grounds playing a few impromptu songs, and no year at the festival is complete without hearing him play his rendition of “Rockin’ Robin” at least once.
