Five local music groups and individuals will perform gospel, bluegrass and contemporary music from 10amCT/11amET until 3pmCT/4pmET, at the Saturday, September 6, 2014, Homeplace on Green River Fall Heritage Festival, 5807 New Columbia Road (highway 55) Campbellsville, KY 42718. The festival itself gets underway at 8amCT/9amET.
This will be the third year at the Festival for The Voices of Praise, Neal Sneed and the Dream Depot Singers, and The Exie Boys.
Leading off at at 10amCT/11amET, will be The Voices of Praise, formed in 2007, at the Pleasant Run Baptist Church in Green County. The gospel group formed based on a vision of the late Sister Barbara Johnson of the Zion District Women's Educational Institute. One year later they had grown to a 100 man chorus, singing praises to the Lord. Today, in 2014, they are much smaller in number, but are still raising their voices in praise of the Lord.
Neal Sneed and the Dream Depot Singers are scheduled for 12pm noon CT/1pmET. They have been singing together for 20 years. They are enthusiastic performers, react to the audience and their music is lively and entertaining. It runs the gamut from 40s to modern hits, country to gospel.
Chris Anderson, a local singer/songwriter, has been performing praise and bluegrass music for 25 years. Chris places emphasis on the positives in life. This will be his first music performance at Homeplace, but Chris has also provided the Mayfield Ice Cream at the Festival for the past several years.
The Exie Bluegrass Boys close out the day beginning at 2pmCT/3pmET. The group features the members of the Curry Family, born and raised in the community of Exie in Green County. They play traditional bluegrass and bluegrass gospel. Their music makes good use of guitars, mandolins, banjos, fiddle and base. Some of the instruments they have made themselves.
While music is a big part of the Homeplace annual festival, there are all sorts of family activities for all ages. Included are hay and mule wagon rides, farm animals, a barrel train, hiking trails, a large arts and crafts fair, various displays and demonstrations and lot of good food. There will be a $5 parking donation per car. The parking fee will include a $1 ticket for rides for each child under 12 up to three tickets per car. There is no additional charge for most of the rides and activities. Homeplace is located at 5807 New Columbia Road (highway 55) Campbellsville, KY 42718. It is between Columbia and Campbellsville and signs are posted.
