Turkey Track Bluegrass Festival Starts Tomorrow in Waldron

Zoie Clift


The sounds of bluegrass
music will be the focus of Turkey Track Bluegrass Festival, which starts
tomorrow in Waldron and goes through Saturday (June 19). The event is one of
the largest bluegrass festivals west of the Mississippi. According to Sherry
Johnston, whose parents started the event, the festival was created June 1978
and has two shows a year, the third week of June and the second week of
October.  “Each event officially begins on Wednesday and ends on Saturday,”
said Johnston. “There are people that have been coming for many, many years. They
are a very faithful group of fans.  People from all over the U. S. come in
R. V.’s and stay for an average of two weeks. Many come in even earlier
and they have jam sessions at night and cookouts. It has a very friendly atmosphere. I
tell people even if you don’t care for bluegrass music, you will enjoy Turkey
Track.” The festival takes place at Turkey Track Bluegrass Park.
