Labor Day Music Festival on Kayford Mountain

Larry Gibson's inviting everyone up to Kayford Mountain for his annual Labor Day Festival on Saturday, Sept. 4th starting at Noon with Music starting at 3:30 - hope you can make it!
Schedule of Music:

3:30 --> Tony Rodgers of "The Ahs" from Hinton, WV
5:00 --> Paige Dalporto from Charleston, WV
6:00 --> Elizabeth Laprelle from Rural Retreat Virginia
7:00 --> Aaron Scott & Kipp McGee

This Labor Day Festival will feature local and regional musicians playing a variety of bluegrass, gospel, folk and old time music, as well as pot-luck meals. The headliners will be area musicians Kipp McGhee and Aaron Scott, who has opened for such major musicians as Rascal Flatts, Alison Krauss and Kenny Chesney.

This is a free concert that will celebrate Appalachian life and attendees are encouraged to bring a covered dish. The purpose of the concert, according to local citizen activist Larry Gibson, is to “bring family and friends together for a weekend of celebrating West Virginia’s heritage and freedom." September 4th will see people from all walks of life, bound by their common love of our mountains and people.

Camping is open on Saturday night - bring an instrument and we'll jam!

* If you can't make this - or have some spare time around noon before you come up to Kayford- it'd be great to check out the Blair Mountain Labor Day Event starting at noon at the Whipple Company Store in Fayette County
