CANNONSBURG — An exciting gathering of great local and regional musicians is scheduled this weekend at Callihan’s American Pub and Grill at the Kyova Mall.

Eddie and the Cougars will perform at 7 p.m. Friday, opening for Bobby Cyrus at 8 p.m.

On Saturday, Dustin Burchett will perform at 6, followed by Eddie and the Cougars at 7 and Paul Pace at 8 p.m. Admission to this event will be $5.

A Homegrown Songwriters Special will be from 2 to 5 p.m. Sunday, featuring Bobby Cyrus, Paul Pace, Rob McNurlin, Traci Ann Stanley and Dustin Burchett. Hosted by Eddie Riffe, the event is very laid back, with performers getting the chance to talk about their writing process and how some of their songs came to be.

During the songwriters event, a guitar raffle is planned to aid WTCR radio’s fundraising efforts for St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital.
