Mayhaw Festival approaches

Only hours away, the 2012 Mayhaw Festival is set to begin this afternoon with bluegrass performances at 5:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. by Effron White and the Travelin McCourys at the El Dorado Conference Center.

On Saturday, the festivities continue between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. outside the Newton House and along Jackson Street between Faulkner and Sheppard streets with a 5K run, rock climbing, museum tours, live music, an antique car show and, of course, Mayhaw jelly, according to the South Arkansas Historical Foundation’s website.

Missouri Boatride and The Belfry Fellows will provide Saturday’s musical bluegrass back beat.

    I didn’t get to hear the music on Saturday. Effron White and The Travelin’ McCourys were absolutely fantastic on Friday night. Ronnie McCoury sounds so much like his dad Del. I am glad that he and his brother Rob are carrying on the Del McCoury legacy.
