Silent City 2017 will have first-time re-enactor: Murrell Burton

2017-09-22 - Burton Real Estate, 408 Public Square, Columbia, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener.
Murrell Burton says that he's a happy man, in no need of additional fulfilling enterprises. "I like to do a little appraising, sell some real estate, and do a little auctioneering," he says modestly. And he does a lot of what he calls 'a little.' There are a great many other facets of his life that come to mind for which he has fame. He's a historian and he's a performer and he's a singer and a Tennessee Ernie Ford look-alike. Come's naturally, then that he would be added to the cast of re-enactors for Silent City 2017, as Judge Rollin T. Hurt. The 11th Silent City starts at 5pmCT, Monday, October 2, 2017, at the Adair County Public Library, 307 Greensburg Street, Columbia, KY, and is performed after a short three block walk to the Columbia Cemetery, 307 Campbellsville Street, Columbia, KY. Other re-enactors this year are Laura Gupton, LeeAnn Jessee, Mike Watson, Murrell Burton, Mr. Richard Phelps, and J.D. & Ellen Zornes. It promises, as in the 10 previous Silent City presentations, to be a wonderful occasion. - EW.
