Mountain heritage at harvest festival

Written by 

A harvest festival will take place Oct.19-21 at the Stecoah Valley Cultural Arts Center on the grounds of the Stecoah School.

Friday evening begins with a campfire and storytelling with Civil War-era soldiers on patrol.

Saturday starts at 8 a.m. with a 5K race and a “One Mile Fun Run.” From 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. the grounds will be filled with the sounds of mountain music and dancing feet. Music acts include the Stecoah JAM Kids, Britthaven Band, Valley River Gospel Trio, Vance Trull & Friends, The Dixie Darlin’s Cloggers, The Oktoberfest Square Dancers, The Leftovers Band and The Welch Family. At 7:30 p.m. The Dismembered Tennesseans will perform on the grand old stage, with adult tickets being $15 and students (K-12th grade) are $5 for that performance.

On Sunday, there will be free gospel singing in the auditorium from 2:30-5 p.m. featuring The Wilson Family, Shining Pathway, Valleytown Trio and Marble Springs Singing Men. Saturday festival admission is just $3 per adult and free for K-12th grade and younger. Parking is free.

Tickets may be purchased by calling 828.479.3364, at the Stecoah Gallery or online at www.stecoahvalleycenter.com.

    art theplaceClaire Lynch likes to blur lines.

    Born and raised in Upstate New York, she eventually moved away, crossing the Mason-Dixon Line for Alabama at age 12. She carried in her mind the sounds of the 1960s folk scene of Greenwich Village in Manhattan and show tunes echoing from the record player in her childhood home. Soon, she’d cross paths down South with country and bluegrass melodies radiating from Nashville and beyond.
