Junior Sisk and The Ramblers Choice – Aug. 9

Summerfest-siskJunior Sisk and the Ramblers Choice will be the headliner during the second annual Summerfest on Aug. 9 at 2 p.m. at the W.E. Skelton 4-H Educational and Conference Center at Smith Mountain Lake.

The event is sponsored by the Smith Mountain Arts Council (SMAC).

Sisk and the Ramblers were recently named Top Bluegrass Band in the U.S.

Those attending Summerfest will be in an area of the 4-H center that features a covered pavilion, so that rain will not cause a cancellation.

There are a limited number of picnic tables and chairs where attendees may bring a picnic lunch. Beer and wine are permitted.

Tickets are $15 for SMAC members, $18 for non-members and $8 for kids under age 12.

Tickets will soon be available at Radio Shack, The General Store and the Smith Mountain Lake Visitor Center.

For more information, call Mike DeGiorgi at 540 719-0686.
