Once again, we were blessed with a wonderful Southern Ohio Indoor Music Festival as the Roberts Centre was filled with over 2000 fans of bluegrass and old-time country music! We kicked off the festival with a performance by Alternative Strings, conducted by our dear friend, Doug Eyink. Forty students took the stage and performed their arrangements of many top bluegrass tunes. Later, they presented us with this very special commemorative plaque that we will hold dear for many years to come. Every artist was in top form throughout the event and folks from Montana to Maryland and from Canada to Florida enjoyed an exciting weekend.
As always, we like to choose a charitable cause and raise money throughout the weekend's events. This year, we raffled a quilt for Hospice Care of Middletown in memory of Tammy Mullins' father, Carl Ray Carpenter. Together, we raised $1861.00 and the winner of the quilt was Lois Nichols of Batavia, Ohio. Thanks to everyone who supported our efforts for this very worthy cause.
An album of photos from the weekend can be found on the SOIMF Facebook page as well as the JMRR website.
Make plans to join us November 10th and 11th for another fantastic Southern Ohio Indoor Music Festival!
