Edmon's Family Farm Bluegrass FestivalAug 10, 2012 - Aug 11, 2012
The country setting of the June and August festivals at the Edmon's Family Farm cannot be surpassed. The home-cooked food available at the concession stand have the unmistakable Southern touch, and are one of the nicest features of the festival. Other amenities include covered, shaded seating, real toilets and showers, and grass-covered camping spots under the trees by a creek, all at a very reasonable price.
This festival pulls regional level bands both from north and south along the Sequatchie Valley corridor. Bands and numerous talented pickers come from as far away as Livingston, Chattanooga, Knoxville, Bristol, McMinnville, Nashville, and parts unknown. There is usually especially fine jamming in the campground at night, with all the regional and semi-professional players who have converged in this central location to perform on stage during the day. These are typically musicians' (jammers') festivals, with the Edmon's Family Band (Louis, Larry, Gary, and Aberdeen) singing their unmistakable harmony in one corner or another.
*Bring a lawn chair to see the performances in a covered seating area.
