Bluegrass Festival coming around again

AUBURN, Ky. – In Logan County, one of the longest running festivals is about to hit for the 32nd time.

Bluegrass is a genre of music unlike any other that not so ironically originated in Kentucky that still attracts many people. News 40 spoke to festival coordinators Lauren and Jaymes Dulworth who took over the festival 9 years ago after the founder passed away.

Jaymes had said he played in a band with founder Otis who said years ago it was getting to be too much for him to handle in his poor health, and when Jaymes asked if he could take it over, he handed him the reins.

The Dulworths told News 40 this has been a family effort for them with their sons helping out over the years and its a lot of work to get it all together but they enjoy putting it on.

The event itself is free, but they’ll have vendors and food out at McCutchen Park as the music plays. The Dulworths said the Bluegrass Festival is good family fun full of banjos and mandolins and with the amount of people coming, you never know who you’ll see playing and who you’ll meet.

The Logan County Bluegrass Festival moseys on from September 15 to September 16. You can also check the “Logan County Bluegrass Festival” page on Facebook for more details.
