Laurel Cove Music Festival June 9th and 10th!! In this episode, Neil and Will sit down with Jon Grace the Bell County Tourism Director and Organizer of the Laurel Cove Music Festival. In its 4th year, while the festival continues to grow it still keeps the small town family identify it has formed from the start. As festival season is off and running in Appalachia, hear how festivals serve as an opportunity to attract visitors and highlight the assets of the region. Take a listen as Jon describes his passion for the region and how this Music Festival just hits a little different - bringing in people from all over the country. As discussed in the episode, the 2023 lineup showcases local, region and even national talent in one of the most beautiful natural venues in all of the country (or at least that's what Will suggests - he may be a little biased) - "The Red Rocks of Appalachia." You'll also hear a sampling of music throughout the episode from performers that are part of the lineup this year! Also, don't forget about the #AppBiz of the week: Riverside Market and Grill!
