- Event: Annual Sandy Ridge School Bluegrass Show
In 1948 upon hearing that Flatt and Scruggs had left Bill Monroe's legendary Bluegrass Boys, Cleo Lemons wrote Lester Flatt a letter inviting the "new" group of Flatt and Scruggs to come to the Sandy Ridge School and have a concert that would be sponsored by the American Legion. In March they came, performed and began what has to be the longest running annual bluegrass show in existence.
The 2017 show is hosted by Rich in Tradition with gust artists Alan Bibey & Grasstowne. An annual event you don't want to miss. Rich In Tradition, (2013 ACMA Instrumental Group of the Year and 2014 ACMA Vocal Group of the Year) will perform and is honored that our featured band will be Alan Bibey & Grasstowne.
