6th Annual Jimbo Whaley Concert
Our friend and staple of the Dumplin Valley Bluegrass Festivals, Jimbo Whaley (along with his band,Greenbrier + other guests), will be presenting his 6th Annual Concert in Gatlinburg on April 10. You can find all the information on his website: www.jimbowhaley.com. We never fail to enjoy those shows. They are always entertaining with wonderful music (much of which is original) and there are plenty of familiar faces there. This band brings out lots of folks who are ready for a new festival season to get rolling. And speaking of "rolling"..............we always love hearing his song, M R's Rolling Store. By the way, do you know what a rolling store is? If you don't, ask your parents or your grandparents. It's a little like a Walmart on wheels.
And there are some great songs with a blast from the past theme that are especially appealing to Sevier Countians. But everyone can identify with them as we all have places from the past of which we have fond memories. For me...........it's Remac's Drive In Restaurant(good old steak sandwich basket!) and the Midway Drive In Theater.
If you haven't attended one of these shows in the past, now is a good time to give it a try. Just hop on over to his website for info. We hope to see many of our Dumplin Valley Festivarians there.
