We’re serving up the sights, sounds and tastes of the south in a new way this year, and can’t wait to share it with you.


The “site” of Due South ShinDig has changed this year! The Biscuit Company, located in Historic Downtown Thomasville, GA, previously housed a branch of The National Biscuit Company (Nabisco) in the early 1900’s, and later the Sunshine Biscuit Company. Biscuits aside, in the mid 1900’s, The Biscuit Company was a local lounge called The Hideaway. 

Clearly, this space has a knack for bringing people together for a good time – and we plan on having just that! 



Forerunners of the Newgrass revolution in America, these guys have jammed alongside music greats like Greg Allman, The Charlie Daniels Band, Doobie Brothers, and Widespread Panic. 
The Hay has six self-released albums and 15 nationally released instrumental tributes called the ”Pickin’ On” series. They are based out of Birmingham, Alabama and listed in the Alabama Music Hall of Fame. 


Thomasville native, singer-songwriter Hannah Wright and local favorite Blue Burden are kicking things off! 

Hannah made her debut in 2019 in Nashville, TN with her first single “Like a Gypsy”. She is joining us from Texas and wanted to jam with Blue Burden who, like so many powerhouse bands, originated on a front porch – right here in Thomasville, Ga. 


We are thankful for the generosity and TASTINESS of White Oak Pastures who are preparing a southern supper for ShinDig goers. Grass fed meat, sides and desserts are sure to satisfy your cravings and make you want to come back for more. Will Harris and his team have been practicing regenerative farming since 1995. White Oak is proud to reduce carbon, recharge waterways and revive communities, like the one where their multigenerational 3,200 acre farm thrives in Bluffton, Georgia. We encourage you to read more about them in our spring issue of THOM Magazine – hittin’ stands in April. 

Mississippi repealed prohibition in 1966, the last state to do so. Forty four years later, lifelong friends and blues fans founded Cathead Distillery – (fun story – read more about it in Spring THOM). Cathead is proud to be the first and oldest distillery in the state of Mississippi and we are grateful for their support and to have that “SIP OF THE SOUTH” goodness by the ounce at ShinDig.
