Lee County Gathering
An “old time” music festival is going on this weekend in downtown Loachapoka.
It’s an all day jamming session of “mountain and folk time music” that’s been going on for 9 years.
They have artists from not only Alabama, but from all over the country coming to perform.
They also had high school and middle school students perform Thursday in their first band day event.
Not only do they give a stage for them to perform, 70 kids also had an opportunity to break into small groups to broaden their musical experience and get some hands on experience with the acoustic instruments.
“What we try to do here is to promote old time music and old time acoustic instruments and we teach lessons, we do jamming time and we have concerts to try to help future generations remember the old time music,” said Deborah McCord,
Festival Chair for Lee County Gathering.
Concerts will be Friday, April 28 and Saturday night, April 29 at 6:30 CST and Saturday at noon CST.
It’s $5 to attend. For more information visit
