Ben Jones and Alma Viator host Rappahannock Americana Music Festival

From the same lovely Virginia town where they recently hosted a Hazzard Homecoming, Ben ("Cooter Davenport") Jones of "The Dukes of Hazzard" and his wife, Alma Viator, are hosting a music fest in a couple weeks. From their email and website:

Ben Jones and Alma Viator present The First Annual Rappahannock Americana Music Festival on May 17, 2014 from noon to 10 p.m. in beautiful Washington, Virginia.

“Americana music is the home-grown music of America," Ben Jones says. "It is influenced by old time string music, jug bands, the blues and rhythm and blues, country and bluegrass, Cajun and Creole, and whatever else that came from the bottom up instead of from the top down. Some people call it ‘roots,’ some people call it ‘folk’ music, but it is all of that and more, because a lot of it is new music made in the traditional way.”

The event will be held at:
The Theatre and Avon Hall Washington, Virginia
291 Gay Street
Washington, VA 22747

Check the event's Facebook page or the official website for more info.
