Bagby Music Fest new attraction for event

GRAYSON — Patriotic and inspirational music sets the theme for a new Memory Days event at 2 p.m. Saturday following the parade.

Bagby Music Fest will be at Bagby Methodish Church on the corner of Hord and Second streets, one block from the parade grandstand in the Veteran's Park. 

Trumpeter Justin Burton will offer the call to the program and will perform the military's anthem music honoring various branches of the U.S. military.

The East Carter High School Junior ROTC color guard will present the flag ceremony and there will be a series of patriotic videos shown throughout the afternoon.

Bagby Methodist Worship Team will perform its rendition of the 1973 Doobie Brothers “Jesus Is Just Alright” as well as some old-time favorites that will include a sing-along for the audience. Feature vocalist Gloria Moore, who participated in the 2012 International Choral Festival in Italy, will perform.

New Mercies, a seven-woman group singing three-part harmony, will perform several of its favorites, including  “Yahweh.”

The program will include an interpretive performance through sign language by Hannah Sparks of Carter Christian Academy of the musical selection “My Redeemer Lives.”

Vocalist Mallory Aronhalt will sing music made popular by contemporary vocal artists. Other guest performers will be Harold Dyer and Friends; Grayson First Baptist Choir; Faith Forward from Olive Hill Methodist Church; Fellowship Trio, a Southern gospel group; and the Gregoryville Christian Church Quartet accompanied by its praise band of musicians.

Immediately following the festival, a coffee house featuring acoustical musicians will be at the Bagby youths’ Brick House. Both events are free.

For more information, call Robert Summerfeldt at (540) 915-8333 or the church office at (606) 474-4334.
